Adolescence and youth: the formation of character

Victor Budarin was born in the Crimean region of the Krasnodar Territory. Nothing particularly outstanding either in childhood or in adolescence with Viktor Budarin did not happen. He grew up in the Kuban, in a normal and ordinary family, by Soviet standards, where everyone was accustomed to work from dawn till late at night. Probably, then there was a habit of not counting

labor as punishment, and without it even bored on vacation and be ready to plunge into the usual work environment any minute. Ordinary school, where he studied as a majority. Maybe they had their own characteristics, but time has erased the memory of them.
At the age of sixteen, most young people are attracted to distant lands and independent life.
