Russia sends hundreds of teachers to occupied Ukraine for salary indoctrination

0

ARussian authorities confirmed on September 13 that a significant number of Russian teachers have been sent to occupied regions of Ukraine in recent weeks, where they have been tasked with indoctrinating Ukrainian children with Russian propaganda.

A Russian government document listing 173 of those teachers was leaked by the InformNapalm website, saying the educators would arrive in Ukraine on September 1 and stay “for a considerable amount of time” to teach children. The publication qualifies these teachers Rashists— a portmanteau of “Russia” and “facism” that is often used to describe those who pursue the expansionist goals of Russian President Vladimir Putin. “We publish this information openly,” the publication writes, “so that Rashist teachers are aware of their responsibility to help occupy Ukrainian territory and brainwash Ukrainian children.”

But such a plea is unlikely to resonate with those Russian teachers who are bent on indoctrinating Ukrainian children with their nation’s distorted worldview.

Andrey Chetvertkov from Elista, Russia, is among the teachers who signed up to move to occupied Ukraine: “I volunteered as a patriot,” he told the Novaya Gazeta. “And I will teach according to the Russian school curriculum. … After all, since time immemorial, Little Russia [i.e. Ukraine] was part of the Russian Empire.

Konstantin Matyukhov, a history teacher from Omsk, Russia, was also among the volunteers. Prior to his departure, he was quoted by local media as saying, “I will not only teach children but also do extracurricular patriotic work, as well as help our peoples come together.” After all, there can be no division between Russians and Ukrainians, because we are one Russian people.

This “one Russian people” doctrine is central to Putin’s justification for the full-scale war on Ukraine he began in February. In a landmark essay published months before the invasion, Putin wrote:[T]The idea of ​​the Ukrainian people as a separate nation from the Russians” has “no historical basis”.

The main points of the essay (and of wider Putinist orthodoxy) are that Ukraine only existed in the 20th century and should never have been separated from Russia. The United States orchestrated a violent coup in Ukraine in 2014 and installed a US puppet government. After some residents of Ukraine’s eastern Donbass declared independence from the US puppet regime and allegiance to Moscow, ‘nazified’, meth-fueled Ukrainians spent eight years trying to murder. At present, Russia is not at “war” with Ukraine, but is carrying out a noble “special peacekeeping operation” to protect people who are victims of intimidation and genocide. And overall, Russia is a victim that the West is against and has never treated fairly. America’s main goal is to destroy Russia, and it is using Ukraine as a pawn to that end.

These are some of the main aspects of Putin’s worldview. And for most of his 22 years in power, he suppressed the Russian press, rewrote aspects of history and imposed curricula in his country’s schools. From the cradle to the grave, Russians are learning this perspective, and the result is that the majority of them see Ukraine and the world as Putin does – and they support him.

Political scientist Anton Shirikov told the Washington Post that Putin’s efforts have been so successful that many Russians reject the truth – that most Ukrainians want to align themselves with the West rather than Russia, but not in a way that threatens Russia – even when it comes from trusted friends or relatives. “They have this filter,” he said, so “they’ll just throw it out.”

And now over a hundred Russian teachers such as Chetvertkov and Matyukhov have been deployed to Ukraine to teach this same toxic ideology to Ukrainian children.

“They are part of the Russian war machine,” said Eastern Europe expert Sergej Sumlenny. wrote teachers. “Exactly like Russian soldiers, these people come to Ukraine with their hatred against Ukrainians.” He also pointed out that as part of these same efforts, the Russian occupiers forcibly got rid of Ukrainian teachers and were ordered to destroy Ukrainian schoolbooks.

Meanwhile, since February 24, Russian forces have forcibly deported hundreds of Ukrainian children to Russia itself, where they are indoctrinated into Putin’s distorted version of the truth. Ukrainian human rights ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova spoke about this profound tragedy on national television, saying: “When our children are taken away, they destroy national identity, deprive our country of the future. They teach our children there, in Russia, the story that Putin told everyone.

Putin’s efforts to brainwash young Ukrainians are deeply troubling and provide insight into his broader ambitions. He would eventually like to control the narrative not just in Russia and Ukraine, but throughout the former Soviet space – and beyond. His corrosive ambition points to a bleak future for Russia, Ukraine and the world. And when current trends are placed alongside Bible prophecy, the indication becomes certain.

The Bible warns that a great alliance of nations will arise from Asia in the modern age. The scriptures call this power “the kings of the east” (Revelation 16:12). In Revelation 9:16, the apostle John wrote that this military mammoth will have an army of 200 million men.

The Bible provides several key details about this greatest army ever assembled. Daniel 11:44, Daniel 12:1 and Matthew 24:21-22 make it clear that this covenant will be one of the main contenders in a nuclear world war iii. Ezekiel 38 shows which specific nations will provide troops for this mega-army and says it will be led by one country and one individual. Verse 2 says, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the ruler of the princes of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him.”

Bible scholars generally agree that “Gog” refers to Russia and that “the land of Magog” includes the vast area where today’s China is located. Meshech is related to the modern Russian spelling of Moscow: MocĸBa. And Tubal means the Russian city of Tobolsk, east of the Ural Mountains.

Yet another name for all of Russia is hidden in this passage. There is disagreement about how the Hebrew word rosh in this verse must be rendered in English. The King James version quoted above translates it by the adjective “chief”. But the exact translation makes it a proper name: Rosh. It is an old name for the people who became known as Rus—Russia.

Thus, the identity of this “prince” of Russia, Moscow and Tobolsk begins to take shape: the list of three names confirms that it is a single man presiding over all the different peoples across Russia, from west to east.

The mention of Magog shows that the leadership of this man goes beyond the borders of Russia and China. Verses 5 and 6 mention ancient names for the peoples of nations such as India and Japan, showing that these countries will also lend their military power to this Russian-led alliance.

When these biblical passages are studied alongside Russian news, the identity of this “Prince of Russia” becomes clear. In September 2014 Trumpet, editor Gerald Flurry wrote: “I strongly believe that Vladimir Putin will lead an army of 200 million men. Look at the power he already has. Can you think of any other Russian politician who could become so powerful and have the will to lead Russia into crisis of crises? I don’t see anyone else on the horizon who could do that.

When he wrote The prophesied “Prince of Russia” in 2017, Mr. Flurry was even more certain that Putin would personally fulfill this role. “His record, nationality and ideology show he is fulfilling essential Bible prophecy,” he wrote. “The timing of his reign also shows that no one else could fulfill the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 and 39.”

It is clear that a bleak future lies ahead for Russia, Ukraine and the world. But Mr Flurry says the fact that this ‘Russian prince’ is on the scene shows that the most hopeful event in human history is now at hand. “Vladimir Putin is a sign, literally a sign, that Jesus Christ is about to return! he writes in his booklet. “It is one of the most inspiring messages in the Bible. What we see in Russia ultimately leads to the transition from man ruling man to God ruling man!
