Schoolchildren from the All-Russian Children’s Center “Ocean” did not answer the question of Russian President Vladimir Putin about how old Alexander Nevsky was when he won his first battle. Putin decided to answer his own question.

“He led the Russian army at the age of 19! And the brother who fought next to him, he was, in my opinion, 16 years old, ” Vladimir Putin said at the meeting, which is broadcast on the Rossiya-24 TV channel.

Vladimir Putin arrived in Vladivostok on September 1 to meet with schoolchildren. The head of state will also hold a meeting on the development of the Far Eastern Federal District (Far Eastern Federal District) and take part in the plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum (WEF).
