Putin says no decision yet to run for Russia president

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Friday said he had not yet decided whether to run for president in 2012 when Dmitry Medvedev's current term ends.

Asked whether he would run again as president, Putin said: "My term expired and I thought Medvedev was the best person to replace me and I backed him."

"In 2012, we will think together and will take into account the realities of the time, our personal plans, the political landscape and the United Russia party and we will take the decision," Putin told academics and reporters from the Valdai discussion group at his Novo-Ogaryovo residence outside Moscow.
