MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin has told the U.S. television network NBC in an interview, when asked about plans for a successor, that he is ready to support someone who is faithful to the country even if he is critical of the president.

“If I see an individual, even if he is critical of some of my activities, but I see that the individual … is faithful to the country … whatever his attitude towards me is, I would do everything to support such people,” the Kremlin website quoted Putin as saying.
