The eXile reports (we paraphrase):
This Thursday, the Ministry of Education will approve a new series of updated, pro-Putin textbooks to be used in the next school year. This story first made headlines this summer when Kommersant found out that it had been specifically ordered by someone in the presidential administration. Here's a few lessons from a textbook called Russian History from 1945—2007:
1. The abolition of directly elected regional governors was a good thing because Russians cannot govern themselves.
2. The nationalization of the Yukos oil company, sending its CEO Mikhail Khodorkovksy to prison for ten years in Siberia instead of allowing him to run for president, means Russia no longer has corrupt oligarchs.
3. Georgia gave up its independence in 2004 with its presidential elections and is now illegitimate.
4. Stalin was an "effective manager," taking Russia from the plow to the atomic bomb in just a few years. His repressions were necessary to mobilize for war and industrialize Russia so quickly. Same goes for Brezhnev. Krushchev, Yeltsin and Gorbachev on the other hand were bad because they were weak.
