The aggressor country plans to draw into a bloody full-scale war about 1800 teenagers aged 17-18.


Russia may use children from the occupied Crimea for "expendable material". Teenagers from the "youth army" can be thrown into the battlefield of a full-scale war that Putin unleashed.

This was reported on Facebook by the Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

"Unfortunately, the "youth army" may turn out to be not just a media and propaganda story, not just a tool for brainwashing Crimean children and photographing kids in military uniforms for the campaign" victory. "Children who were involved in the Yunarmiya movement during the years of occupation of Crimea" , can be thrown onto a very real, and not propaganda, battlefield," the message says.

The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine found out that due to the lack of manpower to replenish the ranks of the occupying army, the Kremlin leadership may consider the possibility of involving minor citizens of the Russian Federation in the war against Ukraine.

"According to the HUR, the corresponding order" on organizing the involvement of members of the military-patriotic public movement "youth army" in a special operation on the territory of Ukraine" was signed by the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation," the prosecutor's office added.

The order refers to the preparation of a potential human reserve of children aged 17-18 to be involved in the war as part of the occupying army. If the Kremlin really wants to make teenagers "expendable", then about 1,800 members of the "youth army" could go to war.

"Let us recall that the "youth army" is a Russian children's and youth military organization under the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, which is largely integrated into the educational process of educational institutions. It is distinguished by radical propaganda work among Russian youth. Children from the age of 8 become members of the organization," from the statement.

By its actions, the Russian Federation wants to create as many obstacles as possible for the de-occupation of Crimea. For this, she is even ready actually to sacrifice children from the peninsula.

"We call on the citizens of Ukraine in the temporarily occupied Crimea, especially the parents of teenagers who were involved in the "youth army", to prevent their participation in the hostilities unleashed by Russia on the territory of Ukraine. Do not allow children to participate in the Youth Army movement! The involvement of children in the war, including their possible participation in hostilities, poses a real threat to their lives and health! The Russian army suffers huge losses and does not take into account the lives of people. For her, these lives are expendable. Do everything to save your children and not allow officials from the Kremlin to send them to their deaths!"
