The Constitutional Court (CC) recognized the law on amendments to the Constitution of Russia in accordance with the basic law of the country. The amendments were approved, including the initiative to nullify Putin’s presidential terms.

Cop in his concluding notes that the procedure for entry into force of article 1 of the RF law on amendments to the Constitution corresponds to it. According to the judges, the amendments do not change the principles of pluralistic democracy and the secular nature of the Russian state, nor do they introduce any restrictions on the rights and freedoms of man and citizen.

Concerning presidential termination, the Constitutional Court stated that the 1998 decision to limit the time limit for Yeltsin does not refute the amendment to zero, but confirms its possibility. Moreover, according to the Constitutional Court, the opportunity to occupy the post of president for more than two consecutive terms arises only with the support of the people.
