Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that arrogance should not be among the traits of a true leader.

During a meeting with the students of the Vladivostok School #2, the Russian President told them about what it is like to be the head of state.

"Anyone who wants to be considered a leader and get any nomination never should turn up their nose and think that they are the best. As soon as a person begins to believe in his or her superiority, from that moment, he or she becomes a loser," the Russian President said.

"Ambition is good, arrogance is bad," Putin added.

In his statement, the president also praised the school's educational system and stressed that "one should learn new things during one's whole life."

The Vladivostok School #2 was founded in 1990 and offers courses in six different foreign languages (English, French, German, Chinese, Korean and Japanese). It currently has over 1,380 students enrolled.

Thursday, September 1, marks Knowledge Day and the start of the school year in Russia.
