Documentary: Our Former “Ours”: the “Nashi” youth movement

In this film we talk about the opposite (in both the political and social senses) to anarchists youth movement groups in Russia: the”Nashi”, or the pro- Kremlin youth associations.

The government at a certain point realized that if young people are not purposefully engaged in political and social activities, there will definitely be people and forces of other vectors on which it will develop itself, and this is not always practical in terms of holding on to power in the future. Therefore the Russian State began to unite the most active and purposeful youth under several names, promising them a career, knowledge, access to information and access to fame, sometimes though questionable ways in terms of ethics.

The views presented are those of the authors and do not represent those of the European Commission.
