As expected, Russian President Vladimir Putin has won a significant victory in the referendum on reforming the constitution.

 

After counting the votes, Russian media reports that 77.9 percent of the voters support the proposals.

The victory allows Putin (67) to remain in power until 2036. He may then participate twice in the presidential election.

His current term of office ends in 2024, and he can serve two more six-year terms after that.
