Russia: My successor will only be determined by the Russian people - Putin

Russian Federation, Moscow
April 20, 2017 at 16:32 GMT +00:00 · Published

"The president's successor will be determined only by the Russian people in the course of democratic elections," said Russian President Vladimir Putin during a meeting with the Pobeda Organising Committee in Moscow, Thursday.

Putin's statement came in response to the chairman of the All-Russian public organisation of Afghanistan disabled war veterans Andrei Chepurny. The former veteran brought up statements made by the First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defence and Security Franz Klintsevich, who according to Chepurny, suggested the name of the successor to the head of state.

The Russian leader also warned of growing divisions between countries, and the rising tide of those that "elevate Nazism to heroic status and justifies the Nazis' accomplices." The group went on to discuss potential measures to strengthen humanitarian and international cooperation in the run-up to Victory Day on May 9.
