Putin the President Part II?

After answering questions from the public on television and radio today, Vladimir Putin responded to questions from the media. One in particular reflects worries/interest among western journalists:

QUESTION: Can you say for certain that you will not revert to the presidential office in the next 12 months?

VLADIMIR PUTIN: Strange as it may seem, this question interests foreign journalists more than their Russian colleagues.

I would like to note that President Medvedev and I have established a very good tandem. We have worked together for many years, and I am very happy about our effective cooperation.

The next elections in the Russian Federation will take place in 2012. I think that everyone should perform his duty in his place. There is no need to fuss about what will happen in 2012. Let’s make it to that time, and then decide.
