Russia's shocking public service announcement sparks stormy reaction among Internet users
Russian media have released a public service announcement dedicated to the upcoming Victory Day celebrations to mark 70 years since the defeat of Nazi Germany during the Second World War.
It is a story of a 10-year boy who was killed in the war of 1941-1945.
The video shows a group of present-day schoolchildren who suddenly see the ghost-boy wearing a Soviet military uniform in front of them.
The boy tells them how his family got killed during the Second World War and he worked at a plant casting shells and projectiles for the Soviet soldiers who fought on the frontline.
The schoolchildren argue the shells are too heavy for a child, and the ghost-boy replies: "Well, yes, but we were proud to know that our shells helped our soldiers fight German troops."
The ghost-boy says that he joined the partisans and became a frontline scout. Eventually, a Nazi sniper killed him...
The schoolchildren ask him: "Were you not afraid to die?"
The boy replies: "It does not matter. The important thing is that we won."
