Saint Petersburg Preschoolers playing with weapons

It’s not a secret that Soviet secondary education included military classes where school children used to learn how to handle weapons. A few month ago, RT reported that some Russian lawmakers proposed to reinstate military training in schools citing the positive example of the Soviet Union and claiming that the move would effectively counter draft dodging. Today, the Internet is buzzing over photos of “An ordinary day in Saint Petersburg Kindergarten”, where preschoolers are learning to handle weapons under a soldier’s supervision. Many raise concern about “how young is too young to be playing with weapons?”
