Putin content about his tenure as prime minister

President Putin spoke highly about his tenure as prime minister as he addressed a grand news conference in Moscow on Thursday.

Putin became prime minister in 2008, after two consecutive terms as president.

Vladimir Putin believes that four years in the capacity of prime minister did him a lot of good, even though it was a challenging time as the country grappled with an acute financial crisis and he was faced with difficult choices and had to take important decisions.

“There was no getting away from that”, - Putin said at a press conference in Moscow on Thursday.
