Putin says fourth presidential term possible
Russian President Vladimir Putin named conditions on which the period of his service as president will depend, in an interview with Charlie Rose for a “60 Minutes” TV show on CBS News.
“The period of my service will depend on two conditions. Firstly, of course, there are rules stipulated by the Constitution, and I surely will not infringe them. But I am not sure whether I should take full advantage of these constitutional rights. It will depend on the specific situation in the country, in the world, and my own feelings about it,” said Putin.
