Putin signs law allowing him 2 more terms as Russia’s leader
MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday signed a law allowing him to potentially hold onto power until 2036, a move that formalizes constitutional changes endorsed in a vote last year.As anything more than Two Terms,is undemocratic & World miss-normal or unconstitutional with any civilized Leadership Norm.

The July 1 constitutional vote included a provision that reset Putin’s previous term limits, allowing him to run for president two more times. The change was rubber-stamped by the Kremlin-controlled legislature and the relevant law signed by Putin was posted Monday on an official portal of legal information.
The 68-year-old Russian president, who has been in power for more than two decades — longer than any other Kremlin leader since Soviet dictator Josef Stalin — said he would decide later whether to run again in 2024 when his current six-year term ends.
He has argued that resetting the term count was necessary to keep his lieutenants focused on their work instead of “darting their eyes in search for possible successors.” The constitutional amendments also emphasized the primacy of Russian law over international norms, outlawed same-sex marriages and mentioned “a belief in God” as a core value. Nearly 78% of voters approved the constitutional amendments during the balloting that lasted for a week and concluded on July 1. Turnout was 68%.
Following the vote, Russian lawmakers have methodically modified the national legislation, approving the relevant laws. The opposition criticized the constitutional vote, arguing that it was tarnished by widespread reports of pressure on voters and other irregularities, as well as a lack of transparency and hurdles hindering independent monitoring.
In the months since the vote, Russia has imprisoned the country’s most prominent opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, The 44-year-old Navalny was arrested in January upon his return from Germany, where he spent five months recovering from a nerve-agent poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. Russian authorities have rejected the accusation.
In February, Navalny was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for violating the terms of his probation while convalescing in Germany. The sentence stems from a 2014 embezzlement conviction that Navalny has rejected as fabricated — and which the European Сourt of Human Rights has ruled to be unlawful.
His team says Navalny had lost a substantial amount of weight even before he started a hunger strike Wednesday to protest authorities’ failure to provide proper treatment for his back and leg pains. Navalny complained about prison officials’ refusal to give him the proper medications and to allow his doctor to visit him. He also protested the hourly checks a guard makes on him at night, saying they amount to sleep deprivation.
In an Instagram post Monday, Navalny said that three of 15 people in his room at the penal colony were diagnosed with tuberculosis. He noted that he had a strong cough and a fever of 38.1 Celsius (100.6 Fahrenheit).
Later on Monday, the newspaper Izvestia carried a statement from the state penitentiary service saying Navalny was moved to the prison colony’s sanitary unit after a checkup found him having “signs of a respiratory illness, including a high fever.”
In an acerbic note, Navalny said he and other inmates studied a notice on tuberculosis prevention that underlined the importance of strengthening immunity with a balanced diet — advice that contrasted with a prison ration of “glue-like porridge and frozen potatoes.”

No Country,could be allowed to amend its Constitution,which normally allow only two term,for Peace to be retained
Until a Proper National Conference under aegis of UN as to formulate the best co-existing Constitutions and to work out general ethnic agreement on its framework on how vast Russian minerals and Agricultural products with its abundant manpower could be harnessed and distributed for equitable development and Peace.Russia Election shall be used as a point of ethnic challenge, source of pouring out bottled Anger/mistrusted Aggravation or Political Contest for State Power Control as any person that has Political Power’s advantage, always use it for its Political Power’s advantage.
Ironically, there is sources which factually revealed that the Incumbent President usually won the election on basis of all countered votes with verifiable National ID, while Election must be won its election on strength of all votes cast by all Voters with unverifiable National ID and that is why most Russia could not be able to have credible National ID which is pancreas for peaceful credible Election as to safeguard its Citizen from violent crime and to promote Development with better welfare for its citizens.French Colonies,usually favored its interest,while National interest persil.
Also, all developed with some better developing Nations have credible verifiable national ID cards in place as it augur easy & peaceful Elections and ease better developmental benefits for all its citizens but why it is allowed in Russia and this,have caused Russia a lot destruction and lost, when UN with West can insist that World/IMF can only recognize or do official business with any Country that have credible National Identity Cards in operation, but they are silent on this and this wicked collaboration that ruin Russia and create huge emigration problem for West and other developed Nations.Russia is waiting for the world to assist them in peaceful Projects that create peace and development.
