Russia: Law to promote patriotism in Russia

The Russian government is pushing legislation that would make it illegal to criticise country's role in the second world war. It's part of President Vladimir Putin's plans to promote patriotism among the country's youth. The government also wants to create a single set of history textbooks for schoolchildren, to promote what it says is the correct version of the past. Al Jazeera's Neave Barker reports from Moscow.
