SELIGER, Tver region, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was planning to plunge into public activities after leaving state service. “I hope political life is not going to end,” he said jokingly at a meeting with activists of the Seliger-2013 youth forum on Friday.
“There are very many interesting things in the world,” he noted. “A person should not be fixed on only one thing. When a person deals only with politics, he foredooms himself on certain restrictions and constrains his perspectives.
“I have very many interesting hobbies and interests, but state and public activities are somewhat different things,” Putin said. “I plan to continue public activity.”
