The State Duma of Russia adopted a bill pursuant to amendments to the Constitution, which, among other things, gives the right to the current President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, to run again for the office of head of state. It is reported by TASS.

According to one of the new provisions of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, the limitation on the number of terms during which one and the same person can hold the post of President of the Russian Federation is applied to the current head of state without taking into account his previous presidential terms.

Thus, this norm allows the current head of state to hold the office of President of the Russian Federation for two more terms.
