What will Putin take home from Kremlin?

Russia's outgoing president Vladimir Putin has revealed some of the details of his departure from the Kremlin. With just seven days to go, he's told a leading Russian newspaper his most prized memento will be a pen.

The newspaper suggests it's the pen Putin received from his predecessor Boris Yeltsin in 1999 when he handed over power.

Russia's new President, Dmitry Medvedev, will be inaugurated on May 7.

Vladimir Putin is then expected to take up the post as the country's Prime Minister.
