Zero Hedge: Russian Government Officials Told To Immediately Bring Back Children Studying Abroad
In Europe, when it gets serious, you have to lie... at least if you are an unelected bureaucrat like Jean-Claude Juncker. In Russia, however, when it gets serious, attention immediately turns to the children.
Which is why we read a report in Russian website Znak published Tuesday, according to which Russian state officials and government workers were told to bring back their children studying abroad immediately, even if means cutting their education short and not waiting until the end of the school year, and re-enroll them in Russian schools, with some concern. The article adds that if the parents of these same officials also live abroad "for some reason", and have not lost their Russian citizenship, should also be returned to the motherland. Znak cited five administration officials as the source of the report.

WNU Editor: When I first read this story I immediately called some people back home in Moscow to find out if the above report was true .... they had no clue on what I was talking about (and they were grumpy that I had just woken them up .... while giving them the fright of their lives). Now Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov has told news agency TASS that he had "never seen or heard" of such information. No one else is confirming this story. Thereby .... with a big relief ..... I am saying that this story from the Russian website Znak is in my opinion bogus. As to why am I relieved .... when I was working for the foreign office I was told that if there was ever a call from Moscow to bring all civilians and children back home immediately .... it was to be interpreted as a message from Moscow that war with the West was about to break out very soon.
