Russia to build Reichstag replica for schoolchildren’s military exercises
Quote:The Russian Ministry of Defense has announced that it is building a copy of Germany’s Nazi-era parliament building at an army theme park outside Moscow. A recently instituted military youth movement will use the mini Reichstag for war games.

“We are building a replica of the Reichstag in Patriot Park. Not a full-sized one, but something that allows the Young Army to storm a specific target, not just any old place,” said Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu in a speech to the Duma.

Young Army (Yunarmiya, in Russian), which was created at the personal order of Vladimir Putin in 2015, currently has over 42,000 schoolchildren in its ranks. Its recruits, who are aged 10 and up, receive a 'patriotic education' from instructors, and also go on hikes, learn to handle weapons, and carry out large-scale military exercises.

Patriot Park, a massive complex 50 kilometers west of Moscow that opened two years ago, serves as the hub of the rapidly-growing movement, which signs up its members directly through state schools.

The photos provided for the article by the Ministry of Defense show an earlier, temporary model of the Reichstag, used simply as a war game backdrop. The new, permanent building will be used in a wide variety of drills, as with an inside area that can be used for a multiple entry siege, and walls that can be scaled. The outside steps will be used for presentations, and a viewing platform is to be put up nearby.

Is Germany prepared to defend itself against Russian school children?

Good. I hope the real one looks like this again soon.

They can use the real one for war games for free as far as I am concerned. As long as they use live ammo.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
