Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he has not yet decided whether to seek re-election in March 2018, speaking from the Russian Energy Week forum in Moscow on Wednesday. “Not only have I not decided yet who I will stand against, I have not decided whether I will run at all,” said Putin adding that all presidential candidates are expected to announce their decision to run in late November or early December.
Similarly, he doesn’t believe that any of the opponents’ allies are ‘permanent’ and that countries following their own specific foreign policy, which may be at odds with Russia’s, is never a deterrent to try and build relations with them. Diplomacy 101.
