[Brief] In Moscow, a group of teenage students organized and carried out a demonstration that included Ukrainian colors and peace symbols.

The children were reportedly responding to comments made earlier by the school’s head mistress, who had responded to an American Eagle t-shirt worn to school by one 7th grade student by saying that the shirt was American propaganda.

The students organized a demonstration in which they came to school wearing Ukraine’s blue and yellow and painted their arms and faces with peace symbols.

The student demonstration was posted to Facebook by a mother of one of the students, Maria Kniazena, who wrote of the action, “I can certainly tell you that I am proud of the children in the class. They have their own opinions, and are not afraid to voice them.”
