Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he had not yet decided whether he would quit his post. He said this during a 'direct line' with children in Sochi.
"I have not decided yet whether I am leaving the post of president or not," he said, answering the question what he would do after he left the position of the head of state.
Putin added that "it is possible to engage in political activities outside the framework of presidential duties," noting that there are public organizations which activities are interest for him.
Asked whether he would like to "remove this cargo for one day (of the presidency," Ed.)," he replied:
"I consider myself an ordinary person, although my work can not be called ordinary because of the specifics. I build the schedule in such a way that I have time for creative activities, listening to music, enjoying sports, meeting with friends. I used to live like this before I became a president. "
As you know, the forthcoming presidential elections in Russia should be held in 2018.
