Russia and the United States are each other’s arch enemies, but when it comes to governing the country they have one law in common. No person can be elected President for more than two terms of 4 years. However, in Mother Russia they’ve added the word consecutive between two and terms. This means that Vladimir Putin aka Action Man can today start his third term as President in Russia.
His first term started in 2000, he was re-elected in 2004, pushed his puppet-on-a-string Medvedev into the Presidential role while he himself became Prime Minister in 2008 and was re-elected as President only months ago. This means Russia will have had 16 years of Putin Rule by the time this term is up for renewal and only a foolish man will bet against Vlad to stay on a fourth term. Poor Mother Russia.
