Generation Putin – level 1

12-03-2024 15:00

The so-called Generation Putin are young people. They live in Russia. Putin is their president all their lives. They do not know any other Russian president.

Zaurbek is 27 years old. He thinks that Putin keeps Russia safe. Egor is 18 years old. He does not like Russia’s leaders. Both men always know Putin as the leader. Putin is in power for 24 years.

Some young people like Putin. But others want change. They have different views, but they all grow up with Putin as the leader.

Difficult words: leader (the person who leads others and tells them what to do), in power (when someone is the leader), view (the way how you see things).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What are some reasons that young people may have different views on Putin as their leader?
