Young Kids are in the Army Now

Young Kids are in the Army Now

“In some areas of Russia kids as young as 8 years old, dressed in full military uniforms, train in camps with real assault rifles and guns” – this is how this report might sound if it was propaganda. However this is not propaganda, so please just take a look at the photos of young kids with guns and rifles on the firing field. Click for the widescreen versions of the images.

I am still not sure what they do exactly, it’s some sort of initiation to something, but they don’t state exactly what they are – some “patriotic military organizations make a field training for its members” – that’s what they say.

  1. Better teach them to keep the rifles muzzles out of the snow and mud. Otherwise I have no problem with the kids learning how to be patriots.

  2. Picture before last one on page 1, you can see that there is a white BB jammed in the receiver ejector block of the AK-103 of the child there… I was sure they wouldn’t give live 7.62mm ammunitions to kids the size of midgets… they are just playing airsoft… such big heroes of the Russian Army…

    • No they are training for it… Killing comes at the next winter camp… when they give them real guns and release them free inside a shopping center in Chechnya… Putin’s youth winter camp 2015-2016 edition!!

  3. Making war should not be considered as something funny or as a hobby by those who created this kind of training. Those kids deserve better things than this…

      • In the UK , we have something very similar called the “cadets”. Twice a week children aged 10 + wear uniforms, handle weapons, shoot air rifles to start with etc… At W-E and in summer camps they learn basic field craft.

        I reassure you, Putin has certainly got nothing to do with it 🙂

    • Maybe they wont to go into army, normal patriotic education in all countries. USA even uses videogames to send young people in army.

  4. It may seem negative educational,but if it really is not mandatory and does not affect school evaluationwhy not vent so the militaristic desires?It depends on how they handle the game.Otherwise ,on the opposite hand, they should ban also “cave-wizard” and “GetIt” and “guards-and-robbers” etc.! And of course the boxing and fencing and swords and frankly all competitive sports. It is the professional competition that must be overcome, and the dangers; not sports and the games themselves — and there should not be distinction between the two categories –.
