Vladimir Putin came under attack by Dalai Lama, who described him as "self-centred".
In an interview with a German newspaper, Dalai Lama pointed out that Putin had served as Russian president, then prime minister and then president again.
"That's a bit too much," he told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper. "This is very self-centred." "His attitude is: 'I, I, I'," – Dalai Lama explained.
Referring to the ongoing Ukraine crisis, the Dalai Lama said: "We had become accustomed (to the fact) that the Berlin Wall has fallen. Now President Putin seems to want to rebuild it. But he is hurting his own country by doing this. Isolation is suicide for Russia."
