Moscow operates re-education camps in Crimea

Russia is planning to establish a military camp for teenagers in the occupied Crimea, where they will be influenced by Russian military ideology.

This information was conveyed by the Ukrainian Commissioner for Human Rights, Dmytro Lubinets, to “Sky News”. It is reported that approximately 100 young individuals are expected to be accommodated in the camp. They will participate in re-education programs and learn the basics of military service, as reported by the German news website Lubinets described the program as “propaganda” aimed at erasing the Ukrainian identity of young people in Crimea. The militarization of education by Russia and the influence of its ideology on children in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine are considered war crimes under international humanitarian law.
