Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Monday that it was too early to talk about the 2012 presidential polls.
He also told a meeting with the Valdai International Discussion Club in the Black Sea resort of Sochi that there was no question of any violation of the law or the Constitution.
"Back in his time, U.S. President [Franklin] Roosevelt was elected four times in a row because it didn't contradict the U.S. Constitution," Putin explained.
"Neither me, nor President [Dmitry] Medvedev will do anything contradicting the current legal system... and the Russian Constitution," the premier said when asked if his possible comeback as president in 2012 may threaten the development of Russia's political system.
"We will act according to the real situation in the country, based on what we have done, on the people's mood," he said.
In a recent interview with the Kommersant newspaper, Putin said the 2012 presidential elections are of greater concern to him than to anybody else.
