President Vladimir Putin took office as head of state for a new six-year term.

The head of state took the oath, after which the chairman of the Constitutional Court Valery Zorkin handed him the symbols of state power and announced his assumption of office.

"I believe that it is my duty and the meaning of my entire life to do everything for Russia. Let me assure you that just as before I will devote my life and my work to serving the people and our Fatherland. This is my outmost aspiration. I would like to thank the citizens of Russia for their unity, for believing that together we can change many things for the better," Vladimir Putin said.

He noted that the support is also essential for asserting our positions on the international stage and for taking resolute action for promoting far-reaching, positive change within the country. Russia must be a modern and vibrant country ready to take up the challenges of time and respond to them with all its energy in order to consistently build up its leadership in areas where our positions have been traditionally strong, the president noted.

On Monday, the 7th May, has been inaugurated as President of Russia for the fourth time. In the 18 March, 2018 elections, more than 56.4 million voters voted for him.
