MOSCOW, July 6 (Reuters) - Vladimir Putin's decision to stop

a small boy as he walked through the Kremlin and kiss his

stomach was prompted by a desire to "touch him like a kitten",

the Russian president said on Thursday.

The five-year-old boy, identified as Nikita Konkin by the

press, was clearly stunned by the kiss and speculation over

Putin's motivation has run wild in the week since it happened.

Curious Internet users propelled the issue to the top of a

list of questions put to Putin in an interactive webcast.

"People came up and I began talking to them, among them this

little boy. He seemed to me very independent, sure of himself

and at the same time defenceless so to speak, an innocent boy

and a very nice little boy," Putin told the webcast.

"I tell you honestly, I just wanted to touch him like a

kitten and that desire of mine ended in that act."

The Izvestia daily, which tracked down Nikita, discovered

that he had refused to wash after that kiss.

"I just liked him and he liked me very much. I want to be

president myself," the five-year-old told the paper.
