Putin Signs Law He Can Run Until 2036
By Micah Halpern

Sunday April 4, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Vladimir Putin signed a law that now allows him to run for president for two more terms.

His current term ends in 2024, so the new law would keep him in power until 2036.

If there was any doubt in anyone’s mind about the “democratic” (and I put democratic in quotes for a reason) nature of Putin and the country he leads, this is another cogent and essential example of his style and objectives.

Of course, he still needs to run for reelection and to win … but why would Putin change the constitution if he was not assured of a successful re-election bid.
