MOSCOW, October 17 (Itar-Tass) —— If elected president in 2012, Vladimir Putin will continue along the road President Dmitry Medvedev has been travelling for the last four years.
“If the voters, citizens, our people accept the configuration of power we have proposed, I, for example, will not make any radical changes in what has been done by Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev as president of our country,” Putin said in an interview with three federal television channels on Monday, October 17.
“We will have to see how all this works, but frankly speaking I see nothing revolutionary there either,” he added.
“As president Medvedev acted according to his own understanding of what is good and what is bad, and according to the situation in the country,” Putin said.
“We have identical positions on strategic questions. But we are not one person. We are different people and at some point Dmitry Anatolyevich decided to take steps towards humanising certain aspects of our life. This is his right as head of state,” the prime minister said.
“We will look together at how this works. I think these are steps to develop our political system,” Putin said.
