In a bizarre speech given to Russian kids, Vladimir Putin made a massive geographical mistake. Speaking to an audience of bemused children, Russia’s President was trying to make the point that Russia should be called the land of the rising sun instead of Japan. But his dad joke reveals how flawed his geographical knowledge is.
He told Russian kids: “Regarding our neighbours, the Japanese” – Japan is indeed close to Russia but separated by the Sea of Japan.
“Japan is called the land of the rising sun.
“But further east than Japan is, I think, Kamchatka or Sakhalin” – these two pieces of Russian lands are actually located further north than Japan.
“Even further east is New Zealand”, Putin added, though further east of New Zealand is the Pacific Ocean and then the United States. New Zealand is in the southern hemisphere, thousands of miles away from Russia.
“And further east than New Zealand is Chukotka!” Putin chuckled with a self-satisfied grin on his face.
Chukotka is in the Russian Far East and is separated from Alaska, USA, by the 55-mile Being Strait– but nowhere close to New Zealand.
“So, the strait is only 60km and then it’s the American continent.
“In that sense, the land of the rising sun is Russia!” Putin concluded.
The failed joke left Russian children puzzled by the inaccuracies of their leader’s claims. One of them wearing a hoodie can be seen struggling to contain his laughter.
A child turned to look at her peers’ reactions as Putin showed his apparent lack of geographical knowledge.
Others stared at him remaining silent and some frowned upon hearing all the mistakes he kept making.
Others appeared to be judging him in silence, as they could not believe the blunder he was making.
