The director of school number 35 in Vorkuta, Yulia Ryabtseva, called the act of a student Nikanor Tolstykh, who noticed the slip of the Russian President Vladimir Putin about the Northern War, as youthful insolence.
“Probably, this is a combination of youth, when there is still a lack of communication with people occupying a position in society, and healthy ambitions, which allowed Nikanor to achieve certain results,” she said in an interview with the publication “Rise“.
According to the director, a young man should have modesty so as not to correct Vladimir Vladimirovich, among other things.
Ryabtseva added that she is sincerely proud of the student. According to her, Nikanor is a good student who takes an active civic position.
