MOSCOW, February 14. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said his eight years in power have been ‘constant drive’ and he has managed to do much over this time.
"We have dealt with a lot of issues. All of this is remarkable and exciting," he said in an interview with Euronews TV channel on Sunday when asked to highlight his time in power. "Maybe one day I’ll talk about this in detail. For the time being I continue working and this work is interesting."
Recalling his term as Russian president in 2008-2012 and as Prime minister since 2012, he admitted that "Both these posts are very serious and challenging." "These eight years of my life - and it has been almost eight years - you know, it’s this constant drive," Medvedev said.
He noted that there have been a lot of events, "both in Russia - very good ones for me personally, notable, major, and sometime tragic events, like the ones we’ve been talking about now, and international events."
"After all, we have not only argued and quarrelled. We’ve also accomplished a thing or two," he said, citing as an example the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. "That was not bad at all. The document was signed. It is in force. It is being implemented and therefore we can work together and agree on different things," he stressed.
