RUSSIA-CONSTITUTION: Constitutional referendum on July 1 in Russia, announces Putin
MOSCOU (Reut) a constitutional referendum that could allow Vladimir Putin to stay in power until 2036 will take place on July 1, the Russian president announced on Monday.
This consultation was originally scheduled to take place on April 22, but the coronavirus epidemic forced Putin to review his plans.
