    School textbooks in Ukraine now teach children about little Alarmik and Adolfik, the two young supporters of Stepan Bandera who tell youngsters how to fight for the Ukrainian independence, TV Channel Zvezda reported.

    Elementary school textbooks now have additional chapters in which Russia is portrayed as an aggressor. Meanwhile veterans of the Ukrainian army, who previously fought in Donbass, are telling school children their "heroic" stories how they killed "separatists" in eastern Ukraine, Zvezda said.

    New textbooks depict young Bandera supporters, Alarmik and Adolfik, telling children about their struggle for the independence of Ukraine in a cute, fairy tale manner.

    Furthermore, Ukrainian teachers offer students methodological guides entitled "The Revolution of Dignity and Russian Aggression Against Ukraine." These brochures teach children how to properly hate Russia.

    Topics on Ukraine's modern history have already been made the part of exams, during which teachers require students to know only the "right" stuff about the last year Maidan revolution and the war in Donbass.

    Bandera was the founder and the leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement, which went from assassinating leaders in prewar Poland to engaging in the wholesale ethnic cleansing of rural Poles during World War II.

    The Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), the military branch of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), executed between 55,000 and 120,000 Poles, most of whom were women and children. The massacres were in line with the ideology of Bandera, who stressed the importance of eliminating all non-Ukrainians from Ukraine.
