MOSCOW, March 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said he would continue carrying out his duties until inauguration.
When asked if he would continue working as prime minister or move into the Kremlin right away, Putin said, “Why? I have my office here. Why should I move elsewhere? There are a lot of things to attend to. I will stand on the bridge to the end.”
Putin also said that he would not take a leave despite a strenuous election campaign. “No, why? I have actually forgotten already what it’s like and I won’t feel comfortable,” he added.
