Putin on CNBC question: I prefer not to answer

In an interview with the station CNBC, 69-year-old Putin declined to say whether he intended to remain in the Kremlin after 2024, after his current term as president.

“Talking about it destabilizes the situation,” he said in an interview JAV stations. “The situation must be stable and secure so that government structures can function reliably and the future can be seen with peace.”

Although Putin noted that he could legitimately run for president again, he added before making any decisions.

“I want not to answer such questions,” he said. “There is still a long way to go before the next election.”

The Russian authorities adopted last year Amendments to the Constitutionwhich allowed Putin to remain in power until 2036. According to the opposition, Putin is thus seeking to become an “eternal president.”

However, some policy experts do not rule out the possibility that Putin may be preparing for his resignation, and note the growing signs of disagreement among high-ranking officials.
