MOSCOW, November 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said he would have turned down his government post if Russia had a president other than Vladimir Putin.
“I would have hardly become the prime minister under any other president. I cannot even imagine it,” Medvedev said in an interview with the AFP (Agence France-Press) news agency and the Le Figaro newspaper ahead of his visit to Paris. There is only one man I feel comfortable to work with after being the president is Vladimir Putin.” Moreover, the prime minister stressed he would not have agreed to take the post of Russia’s prime minister if Russia had other president. “It is not that easy to change to the premier’s chair after being the president,” he noted.
He described his current job as “rather difficult, very large-scale and interesting” and confessed he was not missing his Kremlin office, since he felt at home in the government.
“The Kremlin is not a simple place. You know, it is the heart of Russia, a very beautiful place, but, frankly speaking, I do not look at it as an architectural monument,” he said. “It was my working place for a span of four long years. I made up my mind long ago not to get too much attached to any working place, otherwise you will never be able to work anywhere else.”
