Russian children preparing for war: Lavrov

The Russia-Ukraina War, which has been going on since 24 February 2022, was the most important item on the agenda of the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). However, hopes for the restoration of peace and stability in the region came to naught with the shocking statement from Russia.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, in his evaluation meeting after the summit held in New York, USA, defined the United States' (US) support of Ukraine as direct involvement in the war.

 "Whatever you say about it, but the USA is directly at war with us. We can call it Hybrid War, but "This does not change the truth," he said.

Continuing his accusations against the US, Lavrov added that this is de facto hostile to Russia, using Ukrainians as bait.

Closed the door to peace plan

Russian Minister Lavrov said that the peace plan proposed by Ukraine to the United Nations (UN) and the latest proposals to revive the Black Sea grain initiative are also unrealistic.

"It is unrealistic and everyone understands that, but at the same time they say that this is the only basis for negotiations," Lavrov said.

He added that the 10-point peace plan backed by Kyiv was "absolutely impossible."

The United States has provided Ukraine with military aid worth more than 43.8 billion dollars since the beginning of the war. While the amount of military aid has increased especially in the recent period, it was commented that it was possible for Ukraine, which had been in a defensive position for a long time, to take the offensive with the help of the US.

Winter training in schools

On the other hand, in parallel with Lavrov's statements, an image recorded in schools in Russia was on the agenda on social media. In the images published on social media, it was seen that students wearing uniforms were trained in digging trenches, throwing grenades, and firing with real ammunition.

Russian Education Minister Sergei Kravtsov recently said that there are 10,000 'military-patriotic' clubs in schools and colleges in Russia and that a quarter of a million people participate in their military activities.
