Russian constitution: Parliament backs Putin’s reforms
January 24, 2020 9:17 am
Russia’s parliament has unanimously backed amendments to the constitution that could potentially allow President Vladimir Putin to stay in power after his term ends in 2024.
These reforms mark the first change in Russia’s constitution in almost 30 years and could be voted on as early as April.
But many analysts say they are uncertain about what Putin’s plans are for the future.
