Russian Students Get a Lesson From Professor Putin

From a Washington Post story by Robyn Dixon and Natalia Abbakumova headlined “Back in class, Russian students get a lesson from Professor Putin”:

Speaking to children on the first day of Russia’s school year, President Vladimir Putin on Friday waxed nostalgically about the Soviet era, when “we lived in one single country” and were “absolutely invincible,” as Moscow imposed several new measures to shape a new generation for war.

“I realized why we won the Great Patriotic War,” he told students, using the Russian name for World War II. “It was impossible to defeat such a nation with such a spirit. We were absolutely invincible. And we are like that now.”
