    Victoria Nuland was beaten up in a Soviet summer camp "Young Guard"

    Russian writer Inna Metelskaya-Sheremetyeva shared memories on her Facebook page about the fight with Victoria Nuland. The story happened in Odessa in 1982 at a summer camp where an American girl came to work as a counselor. Future official representative of the U.S. State Department had to pay for the mockery of Ukrainian kids.

    "In 1982 I worked in Odessa at a youth summer camp "Young Guard". And, I confess, there I had a bloody fight with another American girl, also a counselor on exchange program, who amused herself by throwing sunflower seeds in the dust and laughing, watching Ukrainian kids picking up and eating the dirty seeds. I was kicked out of the camp for the fight and was officially reprimanded by Comsomol (youth communist organisation). I remembered her name "Vicky" for the rest of my life," - said Inna Metelskaya-Sheremetyeva on Facebook.

    However, despite the harsh decision of the administration of the camp, Inna has no regrets about her actions. 

    "And today I was surprised to read in the biography of Victoria Nuland, that in 1982, she worked as a counselor on exchange in the "Young Guard" and kept very negative impressions about the Soviet Union ...  I did not regret the fight then and do not regret it now," - wrote Metelskaya-Sheremetyeva.

    Inna Metelskaya-Sheremetyeva - is a Russian writer, author of a series of books "Shards of Civilizations".
