A group of schoolchildren in Ukraine, were seen selling “Blood of Russian Children” drinks at a charity bake sale event.

The kids were also selling “Tanks to Moscow” cakes.

The charity was organized by the children’s school to raise funds for troops fighting pro-Russian separatists. The cakes were prepared by the students with the help of their parents and activists of the group “Family Community.”

The bizarre names were used in order to draw attention to the conflict in the eastern part of the country.

Other treats were named “Russian lawmaker Vladimir,” “Zhirinovsky’s Brain,” and “Yellow-and-Blue Stars on the Kremlin.”

The fundraising event called “Give a Soldier Warmth,” was part of a series of bake sales held at various schools to raise money to buy warm clothes for troops.

About $325 was collected in the latest bake sale, which was held in Mykolaiv.
