**Dalai Lama attacks ‘self-centred’ Vladimir Putin
Dalai Lama states Vladimir Putin is “self-centred” and wants to “rebuild the Berlin Wall” as Ukraine’s Orthodox Church head claims Russian leader is possessed by Satan**
Telegraph - Vladimir Putin came under attack by religious leaders on Sunday, with the Dalai Lama describing him as “self-centred” and the head of Ukraine’s Orthodox Church claiming the Russian preisdent is possessed by Satan.
The Dalai Lama, in an interview with a German newspaper, pointed out that Mr 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’,” Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader 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.”
