Russia to Re-Educate 'Brainwashed' Youth in Patriotic Camps

I have no idea about the veracity of this article. I'm not sure about the Moscow Times. But I thought I'd share and get your input. I'll check in the morning.

Russia plans to send delinquent youngsters to military-patriotic re-education camps and to install special software blocking banned websites in schools, the head of Russiaís Security Council has said.

President Vladimir Putin created a patriotic directorate inside the Russian army last summer, evoking memories of a Soviet practice that once taught soldiers the tenets of Marxism. Observers noted that Putin's move could signal the start of a wider renaissance in ideological education that would spread to schools and colleges.

4. thanks. I hesitated all day

because I couldn't find substantiating articles. But it was so scary that I had to let it out. It reminds me of the Uighers in Mongolia.

5. It is a respectable publication owned by a Dutch group. Putin hates it.

6. Yeah, Moscow Times is legit, not to be confused with Russian state media.

It is geared more towards westerners.

2. Whenever I see 're-educate' and 'brain-wash' in the same sentence,..

I can't help but think of 'The Killing Fields".
The story was short, but, it wouldn't surprise me a bit.

3. The more things change.....

Getting rid of communism hasnít done the Russians much good. It seems like the world is moving more and more toward totalitarian capitalism. The only way itís better than totalitarian communism is thereís more items on the shelf when you go shopping.
