Putin Says Russia to Hold Constitutional Reforms Vote on July 1

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday that a delayed vote on constitutional reforms allowing him to potentially stay in power beyond 2024 would be held on July 1.

"We will carry out the national vote on amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation on July 1," Putin said in a video-call with election officials, after the vote was delayed from April because of the coronavirus pandemic.
