Russia's Putin hints at Kremlin return in 2012
I steek my claws back een, zen I don't lets go !
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin gave a strong hint on Monday that he would run for president in 2012, a step that would almost certainly give him a second spell as Kremlin chief...
...When asked if running for president in the 2012 election would damage Russia's political system, Putin cited Franklin Roosevelt who led the United States from 1933 until his death in office in April 1945, before a two-term limit was imposed.
"U.S. President Roosevelt was voted in four times in a row because this did not contradict the American constitution," Putin told Russia experts from the Valdai discussion group at a meeting in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
