Schoolgirls in Russia have been made to march through deep snow to demonstrate their patrotism, in a parade which has provoked outrage.

The demonstration in Yekaterinburg reinforces claims that Russia is reviving Soviet-style demonstrations of force under Vladimir Putin .

The shivering girls in the video, who were wearing skirts, are believed to be between 10 and 13, and were made to show off their marching skills despite a freak late April snow storm.

The schoolgirls - taking part in the contest ‘Sons and Daughters of Motherland’ organised by Russian defence minister Sergei Shoigu, a close Putin ally - marched in summer shoes, white shirts, forage caps and light tights though ankle deep snow.

Boys wore light shirts and khaki trousers.
