Putin Says Collapse Of USSR Had Greatest Impact On Him

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Russian children at the Sirius Educational Center for Gifted Children in Sochi on Friday and was asked a striking question by a young girl named Alisa, “What was the event in life that had the biggest influence on him?”

“Event in my life? You really gave me a tough question to answer,” Putin said, noting that there had been no events that would directly affect his life.

“Let me try to say this in earnest… Perhaps, I’d have to say… the disintegration of the Soviet Union,” he finally acknowledged. “Such an adult answer, but excuse me, you asked an adult question,” reported Russian state news agency TASS.

The discussion was aired on the program, A Serious Talk with Vladimir Putin.
