To recap, Promote Ukraine wrote that children and teenagers take part now in compulsory military parades in the territories of Donbas occupied by the Russian Federation. Young residents of the so-called “LPR” are actively taught not only the methods of a “hot war,” but also a hybrid and an information one.
