‘Western ideologists will go crazy’: Putin leaves door open to run for president again

Speaking to the Russian parliament Tuesday, Vladimir Putin argued that stable leadership is good for a country in turbulent times but does it mean we'll really see him in power beyond 2024.

Putin said Tuesday that he will seek a new term when his current one is up “only if it’s approved by the Constitutional Court and if citizens support such a proposal” when they vote for constitutional amendments on April 22.

He addressed the issue during a speech in parliament after MP and the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, called for his tenure to be reset so that he would be eligible for two more runs before being subject to the new restrictions, envisaged by the amendments.

The changes to Russia's principal law, among other things, include redistributing some powers away from the president to the parliament, banning state officials from having foreign citizenship and setting the minimum wage above the basic cost of living.
