### p-groups as rational points of unipotent groups

Is it true that every finite p-group can be realized as the group of rational points over $\mathbb{F_p}$ of some connected unipotent algebraic group defined over $\mathbb{F_p}$? For abelian p-groups, ...

### faithful unipotent representations of (finite) $p$-groups

The title pretty much summarizes the question: does every $p$-group have a faithful unipotent representation (with coefficients in $\mathbb{F}_p$ or some finite extension thereof)?
