"So far I have not planned any constitutional reforms," Putin told reporters at his campaign headquarters.

At the same time, answering the question on whether he might run for president in 2030, he called such an assumption "ridiculous".

"As for the chairman of the government, the government as a whole, I've already said that, of course, I've been thinking about it but, in fact, I'm starting to actually consider this starting today because I first had to see the election results. Anyway, all changes will be announced after the inauguration," said Putin.

By the spring of 2030, Putin will have turned 77.
