Constitutional amendments vote in Russia: RT special coverage

Russians are heading to the polls on the last day of voting on amendments to the country’s constitution. Citizens have plenty of time to express their will, as July 1 has been declared a holiday.

Among other things, the proposed amendments would transfer more power to Russia’s two houses of parliament, as well as potentially allow Vladimir Putin to run for the presidency two more times.

Voting started on June 25, and until June 30 people could cast their ballots online.
