Lol, fourth picture in the first link it says:

"[...] You'll learn how to read and write, at first, you'll write the dearest and closest words to us all: mom, Motherland, Lenin."

When I was a kid in Soviet school a teacher reprimanded one boy for writing Mom with the capital M and lenin with the small one. So it was not bloody lol!

On the other hand, the quality of teaching Russian was waaaaay higher. I weep every time I'm taking a look into my son's textbooks.

"Лес. Около леса река. В лесу сосны и ели. Сто лет росли они. Какие высокие сосны и ели. Красивы русские леса."
