Amendment could keep Putin in power until 2036


Russian President Vladimir Putin could stay in power until 2036 after lawmakers voted in favor of a last-ditch proposal to reset the clock on the leader’s presidential term count in an updated version of the constitution.

Under current Russian law, Putin is required to step down as president in 2024, when his second consecutive term in office comes to an end.
The proposed constitutional amendment was brought by MP Valentina Tereshkova, a loyal Putin supporter, and called for the presidential term limit to either be scrapped or simply for Putin to be allowed to run for president again. CNN’s Matthew Chance reports.

  1. The problem is historically nobody has been able to dethrone themselves in Russia without being killed or imprisoned. He's stuck. He has to rule until he dies of old age. I mean, at least he's competent, intelligent, and civilized.

  2. Unbelieveable, i think only african leaders like staying for life on presidency, i dont know that europeans people also doing it, its (me)….

  3. Get ready for an amendment to the US constitution; of course, Trump will give you the choice to vote on it, because your vote will be manipulated or changed to “yes” by his machines. He does whatever Putin tells him to.

  4. No ppl don't want him to leave, because half of world depends on him… He blocking USA imperial crock and terrorists, child women trafficking, preventing war… Thata way all of you hates him… Vladimir Putin is not pupet.. He is real deal

  5. We all here in Russia want Putin to leave the presidency already!!! We are just too intimidated by the ongoing repression measures to go and protest!

  6. So what is CNN's beef if the majority of Russians want it that way? Is too much success against all the hurdles thrown at Mr. Putin by the West offensive to CNN and the critics of Russia? On present performance, he's coped with keeping out all schemes to repauperise the country. This is my humble view.

  7. I'll take Putin..over Trump any day ….he running his country…in like over throw our government we can't stop Russia at all

  8. “President” until 2036?! WTF? He’s always been president for way too long. At this point this is like a king/emperor/dictatorship. ?‍♂️

  9. This is where Democracy suck. If majority of people voted him to stay in power. There is nothing anyone can do. If Putin is doing good job for his country then it's good for Russia. Putin stay there and kick ass dude.

  10. Russians should show the world that they are advance country so they should stop Putin even if they can die for that they should stop him

  11. So there should be no reason for anyone to act surprised, when Ol twitter fingers and Moscow Mitch and turkey neck Barr copy this same crap!!

  12. Are you crazy, he must be in power otherwise who will lead russia and their people, besides usa and china need their help in case a war or something hapens

  13. Hypocrites, hahahaha British Empire and US imperialists complaining about
    Putin, who actually works for living!
    If Russians didn't want him ,he wouldn't be president for a single day!?
