Quote: "The enemy continues to engage in military education of Ukrainian teenagers in order to further recruit them into the ranks of its army.

Yes. From 1 August to 18 August, military-patriotic meetings with the participation of Ukrainian teenagers in the camp "Guards" are held in Penga (Russia). The occupiers took teenagers from the temporarily occupied territories there."

Details: The National Resistance Center said the children were taken from the settlements of Mariupol, Kirovske, Yenakiieve, Horlivka, Shakhtarsk, Makiivka, and Donetsk.

The National Resistance Center added that children are given training, they are taken on tours around propaganda museums and attend concerts by propagandist Oleg Gazmanov in the camps.

Background: The Russian so-called "re-education camps" are "camps of Russification, militarisation and indoctrination".
