MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev does not plan to go on leave before the elections. He said this in an interview that will be broadcast on the First, Rossiya and NTV channels at 20:30 Moscow time this Friday.
"I am a head of state. I have much various work both in the country and on the international arena. So, of course, I will not go on any leave and I will not be engaged in any separate election programme," he said.
"People must judge activities of a president and a government by their deeds. If they think the things are normal, people vote. If they believe authorities go astray, they vote differently," the president noted.
"So, certainly, I will perform my duties, but at the same time I am sure the struggle will be acute. It will be tough, but I hope it will be correct." he added.
