Even Russian kindergarten kids are armed. Mock rifles, but soon it will change.
We need sth like that in Poland, too. Our kindergarten kids aren`t patriotic enough, they only want to play.
This reminds me of the Deutsches Jungvolk in der Hitler Jugend (DJ, also DJV; German for "German Youngsters in the Hitler Youth") was the separate section for boys aged 8 to 14 of the Hitler Youth organisation in Nazi Germany. Through a programme of outdoor activities, parades and sports, it aimed to indoctrinate its young members in the tenets of Nazi ideology. Membership became fully compulsory for eligible boys in 1939. By the end of World War II, some had become child soldiers. After the end of the war in 1945, the Deutsches Jungvolk and its parent organization, the Hitler Youth, ceased to exist.

These Russian girls remind me of the Bund Deutscher Mädel of Nazi Germany Bonobo.
Of course. The Third Reich wanted to conquer all the world and the Soviet Union, whose heritage was taken over by Russia, too. It is natural you can`t carry out such a deed on your own, you need troops.

Yes, but I read an article that the contemporary youth who is mostly lost in search for positive examples need clear and strong authority to believe in and follow - they don`t want lukewarm ones without charisma because they aren`t attractive enough to them.
A question arises: should they be allowed to be influenced by strong authority with the probability of becoming brainwashed in the wrong direction or rather let alone with the danger of their turning to brainless activities on their phones, experiments with drugs and other stupid stuff?
Burning cars parked in streets has always been a strange tradition in certain countries, e.g, France. Not only during demonstrations but also during holidays, like New Year`s Eve. 200 cars burnt last night. Nice.
In Poland cars are burned rarely, mostly by mental guys with arson obsession.
Why are hundreds of cars burned in France on New Year's Eve?
Burning cars is something of a tradition in France, albeit a much hated one by authorities and car owners, and it appears to be on the rise again.
Every New Year’s Eve nervous car owners across France cross their fingers in the hope they can start the New Year with their vehicle intact.
That’s because of a longstanding French tradition that sees youths in certain parts of cities torching scores of cars.
The number of vehicles set alight on the night of December 31st 2018 climbed to 1,031 compared to 935 the previous New Year's Eve, while arrests rose from 456 to 510, the interior ministry said on Monday.
Nevertheless stats released last year by France’s official crime data agency ONDRP reveal that the number of cars burned each year has fallen by 20 percent since 2010.
That was the good news for car owners and insurance firms.
The bad news is that tens of thousands of vehicles are still burned across the country.
The main burning season is in July and August, particularly on Bastille Day on July 14th when youths mark the annual fête nationale with their own firework shows.
The main reason for the fall according to the ONDRP is that the media take less interest now in the mass burning of cars, which means there may be less of a thrill for the arsonists.

Wow! Never seen anything like that before. What a strange way to spend New Year's Eve, torching cars. It happens here occasionally, but usually to cover up a crime or by gangs of bored youths. A garage is a necessity in France on NYE then!
In my English textbooks for kids we frequently run into health issues. One of pieces of advice that is given to people suffering from common cold/flu etc is to have some hot soup. They even add pictures to illustrate it.
That`s funny, it is not mentioned as a remedy at all here.
