Local Editor

Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that he will seek another term in office in next year's presidential election.

"Yes, I will run as a candidate for the Russian presidency," Putin said. He was meeting with workers at the country's historic manufacturer, GAZ, in Russia's Nizhny Novgorod on Wednesday.

"Our country is its people, people like you," Putin said, addressing workers and veterans of the plant. "It's workers, scientists, engineers, designers, teachers and doctors," Putin said, adding that with the "active involvement" of its people, Russia "can deal with any, even the most complex challenges it faces."

"Russia will go only forward and no one will ever stop it," he added.

Earlier in the day, Putin attended the Russian Volunteer 2017 award ceremony in Moscow, where he asked the audience whether they would support his decision to run. The answer was seemingly a unanimous "Yes."

The upcoming election on March 18 will be the fourth in Putin's political career. He held the office of president for two terms from 2000 to 2008, and served as prime minister from 2008 to 2012. Putin then won a third term as president in 2012.
