    Russia to build Reichstag model for kids to storm at patriotic theme park

    The Russian military is building a replica of Berlin's Reichstag building as a playground for teenagers to attack at a patriotic theme park.
    Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who made the announcement Wednesday, said the replica at the Patriot Park just outside Moscow will be smaller than life size.
    Speaking to Russian parliament, he added to lawmakers' applause that the idea is for Yunarmia members "to storm a specific location, not something abstract."
    The images of Soviet Army soldiers hoisting the red flag over the Reichstag in May 1945 have been iconic in Russia.

    The Yunarmia, or Young Army, was created in 2015 on Shoigu's initiative to encourage patriotism among schoolchildren, provide physical training and teach them basic military skills.

    The German government had no immediate comment on Shoigu's statement, which comes amid a bitter strain in Russia's ties with the West over the war in eastern Ukraine, crisis, the war in Syria and other disputes.
    The Kremlin has turned to World War II to encourage patriotic feelings, as the country's massive wartime suffering and enormous losses form a key element of Russia's national identity.
    Victory Day has remained Russia's most important secular holiday, a rallying point for a nation deeply divided over its Soviet-era history.

    Somebody should have told to Russians that WW2 was finished in 1945.

    The Ruskies are in serious need of a collective shrink. All they can invent is some silly recreation to celebrate what was a pyrrhic victory over Germany( look at both countries now and which one is the most prosperous?)as they are a power in constant decline with a shrinking population, a stagnant economy , a military budget and army that they cannot afford to sustain in the mid term and which are way behind what the Chinese and Americans can afford and a lack of a solid and future-oriented economy. They live in the past because they know thei present and future are bleak !
