Putin Announces He'll Seek Reelection as Russian President in 2018

Kremlin Press Service
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said he would seek a new six-year term in the country's March elections in a move that would make him the longest-serving Russian leader since Joseph Stalin.
Putin made the remarks in what seemed to be a tightly scripted appearance at an awards ceremony for volunteer groups in Moscow on December 6.
Putin's approval rating tops 80 percent, and is virtually assured victory in next year's election, the AP story said.
The appearance was shown live on state television.
He served two presidential terms in 2000-2008, then shifted into the prime minister's seat because of term limits, but continued calling the shots while his ally, Dmitry Medvedev, served as placeholder president.
His popularity, control over the levers of power, and years of steps to suppress dissent and marginalize political opponents virtually ensure that he would win.
"Thank you for your work, for your attitude to your jobs, your factory, your city and your country!" "The decision gives us trust in a better tomorrow because our president has proven with his deeds and his service to the nation that we can do a lot". Many investors say the lack of a clear succession plan, and likely jockeying for position among Russian elites for dominance in the post-Putin era, is becoming the biggest political risk. She also said that the law allows Putin to not participate in debates, as performing his duties as head of state is a valid reason to send representatives for such events. I want to say that at present, we have trust only in our president who returned the people of Crimea to their motherland, who restores Russian Federation and who loves his people.
