Putin says he might be Russia’s president for life

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday that he might decide to stay in office for life.

“I have not yet decided yet whether I will leave the post of the president or not,” Putin said on Friday during a question-and-answer session with students in Sochi.

“Only after I answer this question for myself will I think about my next step,” he added.

It’s unclear what Putin’s comments would mean for Russia. Presidents in Russia are prohibited from serving a third consecutive term. In 2011, though, presidential terms were lengthened from four years to six years.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
