Putin, Medvedev Said to Make 2012 Announcement in December

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev will probably wait until December to reveal which of them will run for president in 2012, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The announcement may come in early December, shortly before the date of the March vote is officially set, said one person. There’s no need for Putin to declare his intentions before the end of the year, said another person informed about the matter. Both people declined to be identified because the information isn’t public.
