The seventies called..they want there hell back
Controversial pro-Christian MP, Vitaly Milonov, has urges Education Minister, Olga Vasilyeva, to forbid celebrations of “pagan Satan-worshiping holiday” Halloween in Russian schools and severely punish those, who violate the ban.
In his address, Milonov said had been receiving numerous complaints from parents, who are “alarmed” by plans to stage Halloween celebrations at schools and colleges where their kids study.
“Many schoolchildren are being persuaded to participate in this shady holiday. They are being forced to make costumes of imps, decorate classrooms with otherworldly attributes and prepare thematic plays.”

The ruling United Russia Party deputy stated that Halloween, which only came to the country in recent decades after the fall of Soviet Union, isn’t part of the Russian culture and traditions.
“This holiday has pagan, anti-Christian roots. It well known that it’s based on worshiping dark forces and Satan as well as glorifying the grim Celtic cult of death.”
Celebrating Halloween at schools and any other academic institutions is unacceptable as it can “draw children to mysticism, Satanism and suicide,” Milonov said.
