Disinfo: Hitler Youth in Ukraine: Kiev regime creates an army of children


Ukrainian teenagers are undergoing combat training. They wear uniforms with crosses very similar to those from World War II. This information was published by the US news channel News Nation.

The Kyiv regime uses children to wage war. Nazi Germany did the same. The academy where teenagers are trained is an analogue of the Nazi youth organization “Hitlerjungend” (Hitler’s Youth). Young Ukrainian girls and boys are taught to shoot and prepared to kill Russians.


Recurrent Pro-Kremlin narrative involving Children and projecting the Third Reich and WWII on Today’s Ukraine.

The reportage of Chris Cuomo for US news channel News Nation shows teenagers from a Military academy. By twisting the facts of the original report and presenting students in a military academy as recruits, this disinfo story aims to delegitimise Ukrainian defence efforts.

Article 15 of the law on military service in Ukraine states that the only people it applies to are "Ukrainian citizens whose sex is male who are healthy, who have reached the age of 18 years old the day they begin their service and people who are not yet 27 and who don’t have right to an exemption or deferral.

There is no factual evidence that en masse conscription of minors as combatants is happening in Ukraine. Denis Krivosheev, the Deputy Regional Director in charge of research for Eastern Europe and Central Asia at Amnesty International stated that: "Amnesty International has no knowledge of documented cases of child soldiers in the Ukrainian Army”.

This article is also an attempt by pro-Kremlin media to deflect attention from the massive militarization of Russian Children taking place over the last decade, the Younarmia organization or the kidnapping and reeducation of Ukrainian children as documented by the Conflict Observatory

Claims that Ukraine uses children to fight Russian because of huge losses on the front are not unusual for Pro-Kremlin’s voices and they were earlier debunked by France 24.

Another fact is that Russia and Putin is very active in stimulating its own youth army as a tool to militarise the Russian society.
