How Do They Know They Won't Become Traitors?

Sergey Morozov, the governor of the Ulyanovsk region of Russia, have urged people to go home and do...well, you know what in the bedroom, so that 9 months later they will "Give birth to a patriot", as his campaign is called.

People in Ulyanovsk who give birth to children on June 12 2007, somewhat less than 9 months from now, will receive "a range of incentives from a fridge or washing machine to a four-wheel-drive vehicle, depending on how many children the couple already has".

Understandable move, given how dire Russia's population crisis is, but nitpicky as I sometimes am, I can't help wondering how they know these babies will really become patriots when they become adults? Will the parents be forced to give back the stuff if they become traitors?

They had such manners in Germany too... but that was more than 60 years ago.
