Russia to build Reichstag replica for schoolchildren’s military exercises The Russian Ministry of Defense has announced that it is building a copy of Germany’s Nazi-era parliament building at an army theme park outside Moscow.

Not a full-sized one, but something that allows the Young Army to storm a specific target, not just any old place,” said Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu in a speech to the Duma. Young Army (Yunarmiya, in Russian), which was created at the personal order of Vladimir Putin in 2015, currently has over 42,000 schoolchildren in its ranks.
