Putin told a joke in response to the question about a possible new date
Moscow. 19 Oct. INTERFAX.RU — Russian President Vladimir Putin responded with a joke about a bankrupt tycoon at the request of the moderator of the meeting of the club “Valdai” Fyodor Lukyanov to think about a new presidential term.
Concluding the meeting of the International discussion club in Sochi, Lukyanov “a roundabout way” raised the issue of the new Putin’s presidency, noting that “the Valdai club hard to imagine how we will meet if you take another decision”. “We used you as a talisman for us,” — said the expert.
The President asked: “This does not mean that you will not invite or immediately remove me from the allowance, as the soldier who was discharged?”.
Then the scientist brought another argument, noting that Putin Western countries have become “pole of evil, which consolidates and mobilizes”. “I can’t even imagine how they will cope without you I think you need to think very carefully before you make your decision, the world needs you,” said Lukyanov.
