Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin attended a session at an energy forum in Moscow, when he addressed teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg's impassioned and powerful speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit.

At the summit, Greta accused world leaders and politicians of being apathetic towards climate change and also destroying her childhood with their empty words and promises.

 

At the session, Putin said that Greta Thunberg may have had good intentions and was sincere, but was poorly informed and has little or no idea about conditions in developing countries. He also said that adults must do everything they can so as to avoid dragging kids into extreme situations.

A few days ago, Greta had changed her Twitter bio to "A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future", after US President Donald Trump's sarcastic comments.

Now, after Putin's statements, she's changed it to "A kind but poorly informed teenager".
