BELOGORSK/KARASUBAZAR (QHA) -

A curious incident happened the other day in the village of Vishennoye of the Belogorsky district where a teacher had senior grade students write a composition called ‘What should one do for Crimean Tatars so they become patriots of Russia?’, says a message an unnamed Crimean resident posted on his Facebook page.

“On February 11, a certain Malgin, who works as a teacher at a school in the village of Vishennoye of the Belogorsky district, had 11th grade students write a composition called ‘What should one do for Crimean Tatars so they become patriots of Russia?’. According to Section 3 of Article 29 of the Russian Constitution, ‘nobody can be forced into changing or giving up their convictions,” says the message.

Facebook users were quick to respond to the message by posting their comments:

“May be Russian special services are behind this? Suppose, a boy or a girl writes this: First, political prisoners should be let go. And if he does, he and his family will be blacklisted by the special services”.

“Education technologies of a present-day ghetto”.

"And then they will start questioning… students. The worst is yet to come”.
