The head of the Russian government, Chairman of the party «United Russia», Dmitry Medvedev said that United Russia will certainly support the incumbent President of Russia Vladimir Putin, if he decides to run for President for another term.

«If the country’s current President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin will nominate its candidate or agree on its extension, unconditionally and unequivocally our party and, of course, I personally, as Chairman of the party, will be his in every way to support, because we believe that he is a successful President who leads our country,» Medvedev said in an interview with Russian television.

«And in this respect everything should be done in the framework of the law; who will propose – in fact, ultimately depends on the candidate,» he added.

What method of nomination the candidate is elected, this method of «United Russia» and support, said the Chairman of the party. «If Vladimir Vladimirovich himself in this sense will agree to nominate and if such support he will need, of course, «United Russia» this support, undoubtedly, will provide,» — said Medvedev.

The administration of the President yet does not answer the question of the participation of the incumbent in the campaign of 2018. Earlier at a press conference in the framework of the APEC summit Vladimir Putin has declared that does leave the question about his possible nomination for a new presidential term without an answer, noting that «the time will come, let’s talk on this theme».
