MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Russia would not seek to cut itself off from the outside world with a Soviet-style Iron Curtain.
"The Iron Curtain is a Soviet invention," Putin said during a televised call-in with the nation. "We have no intention of closing off our country and our society from anyone."
When asked whether he would be willing to remain president for life, Putin said: "No."
