About 78% of Russians “supported” amendments to the Constitution that, among other things, would allow Russian President Vladimir Putin to keep his position until 2036, according to the Central Election Commission.
99% of ballots have been processed so far. The official voter turnout reached almost 68%.
To recap, all-Russian voting regarding an amendments package to the country’s Constitution took place from June 25-July 1. One of the amendments will allow “setting to zero” the presidential terms and let Russian President Vladimir Putin stand in the elections two more times and remain in power until 2036.
