Disinfo: "Masha and the Bear" cartoon is illegal in Sweden


A Stockholm court has approved the decision to take 5-year old Sven Strure from his family, as they forced him to watch the Russian animated film "Masha and the Bear".


The Children's Rights' Lawyers could establish, after a house search in the family's home, that Sven's parents bought 3 DVDs with the forbidden in Sweden animated film "Masha and the Bear", and forced the child to watch an episode daily. As a result, the child developed intolerance against sexual and ethnic minorities, as well as against the policies of the European Union and the leadership of the European Parliament.
