The Russians are taking teenagers from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine to a Yuntech camp, where they will be taught how to operate drones [Yuntech means "young technician" in Russian – ed.].

Details: NRC stated that about 100 children aged 14-17, who are members of the so-called Yunarmiya (the All-Russia Young Army National Military Patriotic Social Movement Association), are being taken to the training. The course will take place in April at one of the camps in Krasnodar Krai.

It is reported that there will be an initiation ceremony on 9 May for children who have joined the Yunarmiya in the occupied territory. Joining the organisation is supposedly voluntary, yet here it is compulsory, as children are forced to fill out applications to "avoid problems."

By 9 May, all schools in the occupied territories of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia oblasts are expected to establish branches of the Yunarmiya.

NRC urges parents to pay more attention to their children's patriotic upbringing and ignore Russian initiatives.
