Russian schools have started buying obstacle courses. Ksenia Sobchak's Caution Media drew attention to the purchases. They have already been placed by at least two educational institutions - school No. 9 in Udmurt Glazov and the Youth Palace in Mari El. Also, the obstacle course was ordered by the Art-Residence Youth Center for Creative Spaces and Creative Development in Novy Urengoy. This is also a government agency.
Among the elements of the obstacle course: a ditch, a labyrinth, a wall with breaches, a destroyed staircase and a bridge, a fence and a single trench. The purchase for the school was placed in the summer of 2022, the Youth Palace ordered similar designs a couple of weeks ago, according to Sobchak's Telegram channel. The cost of such structures reaches 9 million rubles.
The publication notes that in Udmurtia, the purchase was made for the center of patriotic education, but both cadet classes and ordinary schoolchildren will pass the obstacle course. At the same time, the palace said that similar obstacle courses should appear in every school - the Ministry of Education signed a decree on the introduction of basic military training in curricula from September 1, 2023.
