Lawmakers in the southern region of Chechnya this week suggested Russia adopt a law that would allow the president to serve three terms in a row. The constitution currently bars anyone from serving more than two consecutive terms.
"This is a constitutional question," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call on Friday when asked about the proposal. "It is not an item on the president's agenda."
Peskov said Putin had made his position on changing the constitution clear in the past.
Putin then returned to the presidency in 2012 and won another six-year term this year, prompting speculation about what he will do when his current term ends in 2024 when he will be 71 years old.
