In the Arkhangelsk region, students in grades 10-11 are forced to take an "anonymous" online survey in which they try to find out their attitude towards Russian President Vladimir Putin, their willingness to participate in protests and their sympathy for "terrorists and extremists." This was reported to The Insider in the "Alliance of Teachers", the information was confirmed by one of the schoolchildren who received a link to the survey.
Although the survey is listed as "anonymous", age, grade, and institution name must be included at the end.
The eleventh-grader himself, who sent information about the survey, said that he studies at one of the schools in the region and "does not share the policy and views of the state." He suggested that the data at the end of the poll would help the administration "narrow down the search for further crackdowns." According to the student, he was afraid to take the survey to the end, because he did not want to lie when answering.
Among other things, the schoolchildren were asked how they feel about the activities of the Governor of the Arkhangelsk Region Alexander Tsybulsky, what problems they consider the most significant in the region and what they plan to do if these problems are not solved. There are also questions about whether students are satisfied with their lives, what they think about extremism, and how they treat people of different nationalities and other religions.
Earlier in October, sources told The insider that teachers in schools in Rostov-on-Don were forced to donate to help the “defenders of Donbass.” The teachers were asked to write an application to the accounting department for the amount to be deducted from the salary, or simply send the salary for one working day (from 750 to 1000 rubles) to the principal's personal account. Also in one of the schools, in a social studies lesson, students were told that Ukrainians are “animals and sadists” who “scalp” and “pull out their nails.”
