This summer, some 10,000 Russians will head to a summer camp north of Moscow run by Nashi — "Ours" in Russian — a youth group supportive of President Vladimir Putin.Everybody gets a political education during their stay. A common theme at lectures: how Russia will once again be a global power. In promoting a healthy lifestyle, the group doesn't tolerate smoking or drinking and all camp members work out together in the morning. Both Medvedev and Putin both frequently visit the camp. Attendance to all lectures and events is required . An electronic chip in members' name tags tells organizers if anyone has cut class.
Remind you of anything?
