Putin reveals how his mother put him in time-out

He specified that he was about 3-4 years old at that time

PYATIGORSK, December 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has recalled a personal childhood memory about how his mother put him in a corner, with the two of them making up in the end.

"[What's my fondest childhood memory related to] family? It's a pretty personal thing, I'll just tell you the beginning of the story. My mother put me in a corner, I don't even remember why, and for some time she walked around, looking menacingly at me, asking, 'Are you going to ask for forgiveness or not?' I will tell you one-on-one how this story ended, I'll just leave some parts out. Anyway, it ended with her kissing me, pulling me out of that corner, and that was the end of the story. But the way she did it, that's a separate conversation," he said at the second meeting of the Movement of the First, smiling as he answered a question from the pupils of the media center from the Vologda Region.

Putin specified that he was about 3-4 years old at that time.
