Medvedev steps aside for Putin
Issued on: Modified:
In the musical chairs of Russian politics, the same man appears to be once again landing in the hot seat. This weekend Russia's long-term strong man Vladimir Putin confirmed he will run for presidency in 2012. Political pundits say it's now clear that Dmitry Medvedev who's been President since Putin relinquished the post, was only keeping the seat warm for Putin who was barred by the constitution from running for a third term.
