Putin wins vote to remain Russian President till 2036

Russian voters have approved changes to the constitution that will allow President Vladimir Putin to potentially stay in power until 2036. The 67-year-old has ruled Russia for more than two decades as President or Prime Minister. He has now won the right to run for two more six-year terms after the current one ends in 2024. The vote seeks to introduce amendments to Russia’s 1993 Constitution, which will include protecting the institution of marriage, setting children as a priority of Russia’s domestic policy and an obligation to support and protect Russia’s culture.
