Explore the concerning developments in Russia's approach to history and education in occupied regions. In a new textbook on the history of Russia, parts of Ukraine are portrayed as supposed new lands of the federation, and the United States is alleged to benefit from Russia's war against Ukraine. This propaganda-filled textbook, introduced even in temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories, includes 17 paragraphs of Kremlin propaganda under the guise of discussing a full-scale invasion. Russian Minister of Education Kravtsov claims that this manual is meant to "fight against the splitting of peoples and the spread of mistrust between people." Join us as we examine the implications of this distortion of history and the militarization of education.
