Putin’s Amendments To Russia’s Constitution Sparks Debate About Russian Nationalism

On many occasions, Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for the adoption of new amendments to the Russian Constitution. Putin has usually referenced several reasons why the head of State would want to change the basic law of the country, which is only 27 years old. This is the desire to expand the powers of the Parliament (State Duma), and limit the tenure of the presidency to two terms without the fateful word “in a row”, which allowed Putin to be elected 4 times, to ensure the immunity of former presidents and establish the priority of the Constitution of the Russian Federation over International Law.

The gossip behind all this activity is Putin’s desire to remain at the helm of the State after 2024, moving to the Chairperson of the Parliament, and recently, his former Adviser Vladislav Surkov said that after the adoption of the amendments Putin’s presidential terms must be reset and he has to get a new opportunity to run again (this statement was quickly disavowed by Kremlin, but in the end of the Campaign this Amendment appeared in the collection).
