Moscow, March 6 (Interfax) – One cannot serve three presidential terms, even if separated by a break, said former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev.
“Two five- or six-year terms – and no more [returns],” Gorbachyov said on the Ekho Moskvy radio station on Tuesday.
As regards the current political situation, he said: “We were brought up ‘on the bog’ (he was referring to Bolotnaya Square, which means Bog Square in Russian), which was an instructive experience.”
“Nor do I believe in whimpering and disappointments. I think we are seeing the beginning of a new era,” Gorbachev said.
