The amended constitution clears the way for Mr. Putin, already the country’s longest-serving ruler since Joseph Stalin, to approach the 43-year reign of Peter The Great

The Kremlin is believed to have wanted to hold the referendum as soon as possible, before the full consequences of the economic shutdown caused by the pandemic take hold.

As the chair comes out

'I stand with Russia against those who wish Russia to be a broken backed basket case like it was when President Boris Yeltsin was lying flat out on the floor drunk and the West was picking its pockets'
