Hidden in a Ukrainian forest, a youth camp trains children as young as 8 to kill, adopt its nationalist ideology, fight Russians. An Associated Press visit to a summer camp created by a Ukrainian nationalist group finds children and teens being taught to use assault rifles. At the same time, they are being inculcated with nationalist ideology, including derision of LGBT rights, which lecturers denounce as a sign of Western decadence. The nationalists have built a network of such camps, some of them partially financed by the government.
