Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with United Russia party members on Wednesday that he enjoyed his prime minister's duties.
"I suppose my happiness lies in performing the duties that I like. I enjoyed being a student, I enjoyed being a post-graduate, I enjoyed being a lecturer in legal sciences, I enjoyed legal practice, I enjoyed being a civil servant, I enjoyed working as the country’s president and I truly enjoy being a prime minister,” Medvedev said when asked what job he relished the most.
When asked if he planned to engage in scholarly research when leaving civil service, Medvedev said he was unsure whether he would be able to become a true academic after devoting himself to politics for so many years.
“But what I know for sure is that when I end my career as a civil servant, I will definitely tell as many people as possible about my experience, because I find it useful,” he said.
