Medvedev disagrees with Putin on modernization

Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev says he disagrees with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on speed of country's modernization.
Medvedev said Wednesday that he believes that the nation could modernize faster than Putin thinks, a rare expression of public disagreement with his powerful predecessor and mentor.
Medvedev, however, emphasized that he and Putin share the same strategic goals and similar policy approaches.
Putin and Medvedev have been evasive about their plans for the next March's presidential elections. They both have said they would decide later whether to run, but most analysts expect Putin to reclaim the nation's top job.
