In Russia it makes sense to think about making nominations for an election, when election campaign begins, said a spokesman for the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov.
MOSCOW, 29 Jan. The President of Russia Vladimir Putin has made no decision regarding participation in the next presidential election in Russia, still too far away, said a spokesman for the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov.
“The fact of the matter is that for two years to talk about elections particularly as it is not accepted, and yet far enough before the election campaign. And not even knowing whether Putin is the intention to run further, or has not, still, just in case, had, shall we say, a priori, the slanderous campaign has been started. But this, of course, does not mean that any decisions taken by the President,” said Sands reporters, responding to a question whether the President to run for presidential elections in two years.
Answering the question that the General election is two years and, for example, in the U.S. much earlier start to prepare for a presidential campaign, Peskov replied: “Well they see what is happening in the States”.
While the President’s press Secretary stressed that in Russia it makes sense to think about the nomination, “when the election campaign begins”. “It’s not the subject,” concluded Sands.
