Putin is Right

I hate to admit it, but the man’s got a point

Chairing a session titled ‘Energy Partnership for Sustainable Growth’ at an energy forum in Moscow, Putin said: ‘I may disappoint you but I don’t share the common excitement about the speech by Greta Thunberg.

‘No one has explained to Greta that the modern world is complex and different and…people in Africa or in many Asian countries want to live at the same wealth level as in Sweden.

‘Go and explain to developing countries why they should continue living in poverty and not be like Sweden.’
