Vladimir Putin: Russia's border 'doesn't end anywhere'

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said Russia's border "doesn't end anywhere", addressing a televised awards ceremony for geography students.

He asked a nine-year-old boy where Russia's border ended and the boy replied "at the Bering Strait". Mr Putin provided his own answer, which he then said was meant as a joke.

Mr Putin has pledged to defend ethnic Russians wherever they live.
