​Putin reveals date for constitutional vote


Russia’s public vote on a set of constitutional amendments that would allow President Vladimir Putin to stay in power through 2036 will take place on July 1, Putin said at a meeting with officials, according to local media.

“Indeed, July 1 looks like quite a suitable date to hold the Russian vote on the constitutional amendments,” Putin said during a video conference with members of the constitutional amendments working group.

The vote was initially set for April 22 but pushed back due to the coronavirus.
