MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin considers himself as the strongest candidate at the presidential elections. The prime minister said so to reporters after a question-and-answer session. “Perhaps, I am,” Putin said in reply to a question, whom he sees as the strongest rival in an upcoming presidential race.
He and other candidates will have a difficult and responsible period of time, he said. “You should have clear ideas and should be understandable for people and should not make mistakes,” the prime minister shared his experience. “The experience of the previous work gives me the right to believe that I succeeded to do it,” he concluded.
