It’s the season for prom, graduation, and hot afternoons stuck in the classroom.Which means it’s also dress code enforcement time in a lot of schools.After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Artek, like all of Crimea, was part of an independent Ukraine and the facility fell on hard times.
But now it is being reborn, and it is reborn as an international holiday camp," Putin said in a speech to the young people.
Putin has visited Crimea before since Russia's annexation, which was condemned by the international community, and Kiev considers it to still be part of Ukraine.
The dress code can make my morning as a mom go much easier, which I have discussed before.
But I have been happier with this dress code than many others because it isn’t so gender focused. As a mom, there are things I like about dress codes – have I mentioned how easy our mornings are?
Putin made a stop at the legendary Artek holiday camp for young people, dating from Soviet times, on the shores of the Black Sea, the Kremlin said in a statement.
Founded in 1925 based on an idea from Lenin, the father of Russian communism, Artek went from a sanitorium for children with tuberculosis to a camp for "pioneers", the communist youth organisation for children aged 10 to 14.
– though as a former teen and a youth advocate I certainly can see a lot of problems with them, particularly in the way they put the focus of male education in the way girls dress, which is of course ridiculous.
I think school districts everywhere should rethink what the purpose and focus of their dress codes are and rethink their wording.
Ukraine has been fighting a pro-Russian insurgency in the east of the country since 2014 which Kiev and its Western allies say is backed by Moscow.
