The Teens decided to clarify the situation and went to the teacher. “We asked teachers, how can this be on the social studies textbook.

Edition Tut.by found that the textbook was published in 2009, and appealed to the artist of the cover. She said that details of the work on the cover of the Handbook does not remember. “In General, the use of stock photos in the original or processed is common practice.
