Ukrainian TV Channel 24 journalist Volodymyr Runets posted on his Facebook page photos of writing skills tests from an exercise book of a student from the village of Kuchurgan in southern Ukrainian Odesa region, at the border with unrecognized Transnistria.

The Ukrainian language exercise book is full of typical messages of the Kremlin's anti-American propaganda, the journalist says.

"In 1919, the United States sent agents in Russia named the Bolsheviks in order to organize a coup d'etat and economic crisis. The United States, as our allies, mobilized troops, when the Soviet army had already entered Germany and had provided food assistance. Everyone who ate canned food was poisoned to death. Nowadays, by all secret, but criminal, means, the U.S. seeks to dominate the world," a student was told to write in his notebook during class.
