Russian President Vladimir Putin announced to reporters that he would not seek a third consecutive term as President of Russia during an interview with the heads of international news agencies at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on Friday.

A reporter asked Putin if he would step down as President of Russia following this term.

“I stick to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, and in the Constitution, it is written that you can have no more than two consecutive terms,” Putin said. “This is my second term. As you remember, I was president twice before that and then I left the position because the Constitution didn’t provide for me to be reelected, and I want to stick to this regulation, as well.”
