By Iryna Matviyishyn, for Atlantic Council With an eye to the future, officials in the Russian-occupied territories of Ukraine are waging a campaign of “patriotic education” aimed at reaching the hearts and minds of those most susceptible to ideological persuasion: children.

NATO Azov Sea ‘Package’ prompts Russian suppression threat

By Polygraph Franz Klintsevich Member of the Federation Council’s Committee on Defense and Security “If you are trying to arrange a provocation, based on the idea that Crimea is not ours and without complying with international norms, you will be attempting to break through the border of the Russian Federation, all of which will be harshly suppressed, whether we are talking about Ukrainian, American or any other ships.” Source: Russian
