IS Putin planning to quit the Kremlin?

Putin, 68, has rushed through an unexpected new law in Russia which would make him a senator for life if he leaves the presidency. The draft legislation would also guarantee him legal immunity and state perks until his death.
RT Media claim the move is ‘as a sign that the groundwork is being laid for an eventual transition of power in Russia’.
Putin is already the longest-serving Kremlin leader since Stalin having taken over the Russian presidency from Boris Yeltsin in 1999.
