At a summer camp created by one of Ukraine’s radical nationalist groups, campers as young as eight-years-old practice using assault rifles. They are taught to shoot to kill Russians and their sympathizers. The camp, hidden in a forest in western Ukraine, was visited by The Associated Press. Campers were awakened in the middle of the night with a blast from a stun grenade. Stumbling out of their tents, soldiers in training struggled to hold AK-47s that were, in some cases, almost as tall as they were. They were required to carry the heavy rifles all day, and one of the girls broke down in tears from exhaustion.
