In Russia and in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine in schools, colleges and technical schools, since April 16, all schoolchildren and students are forced to kneel in the shape of a five-pointed star.

According to the publication Meduza, the organizers timed the so-called flash mob to coincide with the “Day of United Action in memory of the genocide of the Soviet people by the Nazis and their accomplices during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.”

Photos of minor pupils or students kneeling in the shape of a five-pointed star began to be distributed on the social network VKontakte, which is banned in Ukraine. and websites of Russian educational institutions.

According to Russian publications, in several dozen published photos you can see that children are on their knees, for example, in schools in Mordovia, Chuvashia, Bashkortostan, Omsk and Rostov regions, as well as temporarily occupied Crimea.

Allegedly, in one of the schools in Usolye-Sibirsky in the Irkutsk region, even first-graders were forced to their knees.

In another school in the Omsk region, five girls were put on the floor in the gym in the shape of a star, and in an educational institution in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, children were lined up in the shape of the letter Z, which became a symbol of the full-scale invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine.
