The country is preparing to vote on amendments to the Russian Constitution. The amendments will come into force if, of course, the citizens vote for them.
The vote has been scheduled, but not everyone understands the essence of the amendments to the country's supreme law. According to a Levada Center poll, 84% of respondents have heard of the amendments, but only 14% "know" their content "well." At the same time, 87% of Russians are informed that a nationwide vote will take place in the near future, and 64% of citizens will vote for the proposed changes. So why do we need amendments to the Constitution, and what kind of amendments are proposed to be put to a national vote?
