Children of Azov Conscripted to Die in Russian Meat Grinder
Nothing about this in tightly controlled and endlessly spun corporate war propaganda media.
Earlier today, I watched Col. Douglas Macgregor on Judge Napolitano’s podcast. Macgregor mentioned the child soldiers of Ukraine. The interview was posted on December 29.
As usual, it is difficult to find mention of this in the corporate war propaganda media. I was able to track down a single mention of child soldiers in Ukraine posted by the corporate media—remarkably, by none other than CNN. However, the information is seriously counter-narrative, so a “fact checker” was thrown into the mix to dispute the CNN tweet.
Not that it matters. For those interested in discovering the truth, there are plenty of videos showing the child soldiers of Ukraine (more directly, the child soldiers of the Azov Battalion, as I explain below).
For the civilized, the idea that children as young as 13 or 14 should be used as Russian bullet stoppers (and this is precisely what they are) is barbaric and inhumane, something usually found among the warring tribes of sub-Saharan Africa.
The Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the involvement of children in armed conflict states that warring parties “shall take all feasible measures to ensure that members of their armed forces who have not attained the age of 18 years do not take a direct part in hostilities.”
As noted above, most child soldiers are conscripted in Africa (Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad, Sierra Leone), although they are also exploited in Sir Lanka, Myanmar (Burma), and Colombia.
In Ukraine, children are indoctrinated (to hate Russians, Jews, Roma, and Poles) and taught military skills at an Azov Battalion “summer camp.”
Of course, there is virtually nothing about this in the tightly controlled and endlessly spun corporate war propaganda media. However, as they say, pictures are often worth a thousand words. The following photo was taken by a Romanian journalist.
In August 2015, a year after the USG-orchestrated coup in Ukraine, Prof Michel Chossudovsky of Global Research posted an article exposing “a Summer Camp military training project for young children as part of its broader training and indoctrination program.”
It was reported by the Kyiv Post that children as young as six years old participated in the program held at a location in the Vodytsya district outside Kyiv. The Post attempted to spin the story.
… this particular camp is run by the Azov Battalion founded by lawmaker Andriy Biletsky, its former commander. Located in the wooded area of Kyiv’s Pushcha Vodytsya district, kids at this summer camp aren’t just playing soldiers—they’re getting actual military training from soldiers who have fought on the front line in Russia’s war against Ukraine.
Named Azovets, the camp has been the subject of negative coverage in the Russian media, pro-Russia websites and even U.K. tabloid The Daily Mail.
“Neo-Nazi summer camp: Ukrainian kids taught to shoot AKs by Azov battalion members (PHOTOS),” reads Kremlin-controlled RT’s headline for its story about the camp.
“Shocking pictures from inside neo-Nazi military camp reveal recruits as young as SIX are being taught how to fire weapons (even though there’s a ceasefire),” reads the headline in the Daily Mail’s sensationalized and inaccurate article. (Kyiv Post, August 29, 2015) (Emphasis added.)
Needless to say, the Daily Mail would not run this story today. The original post was scrubbed from the Kyiv Post website, lest the world understands the true character of the UAF and its embedded “national guard” neo-Nazi killers and child slavers.
When the Kyiv Post visited the Azovets camp on Aug. 19 the kids were busy with a range of activities, including stripping down and assembling AK-47 assault rifles, target practice (with air guns), tackling assault courses, and practicing combat poses and patrolling. They also take part in various sports and games, do rappelling and climbing, and practice other more traditional scouting and woodcraft skills like tying knots.
In addition to training in the use and handling of weapons, Ukronazi overseers indoctrinate impressionable minds in hate. “A boy who sits on a log softly whispers: ‘I want that this war will end and we will kill all the Russians.’”
Again, the article by Faina Nakonechnaya was posted well before the Russian SMO, thus demonstrating how neo-Nazi ultranats have brainwashed the next generation and are now feeding them into the Russian meat grinder on the Donbas front.
The takeaway on this is obvious—Ukraine is losing so many men, either at the front or through emigration, that it now believes it must sacrifice its children on the bloody altar of Stepan Bandera, Symon Petliura, Yevhen Konovalets, Andriy Melnyk, Mykola Lebed, and other vicious ultranats of yore.
It will require an extraordinary effort to deprogram these children. Unfortunately, like many of their fathers and grandfathers, thousands of them will no doubt end up in mass graves or left to rot in the field like so many Ukrainian (and foreign mercenary) adults, many forced at gunpoint into the slavery of conscription and rushed by the truckload to the front to in droves where they perish in the non-stop meat grinder of Russian artillery.
