Russian President Vladimir Putin is considering running for a fourth Kremlin term in 2018, which would see him stay in power until 2024.

Putin is allowed to hold office for a maximum of two consecutive terms under the Russian constitution.

After completing his second consecutive term in office in 2008, Putin got round the constitutional limit by swapping roles with Dmitry Medvedev and serving as prime minister for one term, before returning to the presidency.

Now aged 62, Putin would turn 72 in 2024.
