UPD: 23/05/2014 Children in the occupied Crimea are being promoted by the military "exploits" of the pioneers: "Are we returning to the times of the USSR?". PHOTO reportage
In Kerch, among the children propagandize the military exploits of the pioneer heroes.
As the correspondent of Crimea. Reality reports, the thematic exhibition is opened in the hall of the largest in the Palace of Children and Youth Creativity, formerly known as the Palace of Pioneers.

Parents have different attitudes towards the exhibition. Some support the idea of patriotic upbringing of the youth, while others are strongly opposed.
"When I first saw this exhibition, I even had a pulse. Are we returning to the times of the USSR when all citizens, even young children, were demanded of heroism?

It is necessary to teach children to live, create and create for the benefit of their neighbors and their families ", - shared her opinion with the correspondent of Crimea.

UPD: 23/05/2014 "Elections in one round" - this is the electoral technology of Poroshenko, - journalist
Journalist Sergei Leschenko believes that the thesis that elections should be held in one round is a subtle electoral technology of Peter Poroshenko's staff.
He wrote about this in his facebook.
Leshchenko said: "Elections in one round" is the technological development of Poroshenko's headquarters, which even some of my friends, sober-minded Kyivites, barked at. Citizens should vote in the first round on the basis of personal convictions, and not because some candidate does not The election in the first round is like choosing from the menu in the restaurant.If you like borscht, choose borscht, even if all the soup are cooked in this cafe, which have been cooked very much, and it is profitable for the owner of the restaurant to quickly sell the remains of the cabbage soup. Seriously, the thesis about the elections in one round is based on an incorrect interpretation of sociological studies, because the rating of Poroshenko 45+ among those who will definitely go to the polls and has exactly decided on his choice. And believe me - if Putin intends to attack, then for him It matters, the elections will take place in one or two rounds.
