Vladimir Putin claims Greta Thunberg is “poorly informed”

Vladimir Putin has denounced child climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

The Russian president says he is “not excited” by the 16-year old and that she does not have a fully formed understanding of world issues.

After Thunberg’s UN speech last month, Putin has been left with the impression that she is “poorly informed”.

Although Putin did perceive Thunberg as a “kind and sincere girl”, he also showed concern for her, suggesting that she is being manipulated. Without elaborating his thoughts Putin said that “it’s deplorable when someone is using children and teenagers in their interests.

Putin continued to condemn the teenager expressing that he doesn’t “share exultation about Greta Thunberg”. He went on to explain his thinking saying: “Go and explain to developing countries why they should continue living in poverty and not be like Sweden.”
