Russian President Vladimir Putin said that without the support of citizens at a national vote, he might not sign constitutional amendments. They should become the final authority that will decide the fate of the bill.

"Only after people say their word, I will sign it or will not sign it," - quoted TASS the head of state. 

Vladimir Putin recalled that the amendments discussed do not imply the abolition of the independence of local authorities, which is guaranteed by the Constitution. However, they should be included in the achievement of national development goals as a reliable and not an inert link in the system of power.

"The clear fulfillment of their duties by each level of government, their close interaction, and business partnership are the basis and guarantee of the fulfillment of our plans to improve the quality of life of RFC citizens," the president said. 

He added that the new law establishes a principled position on ensuring the unity of all levels of public authority. 24 of the State Duma of the Russian Federation on first reading unanimously approvedamendments to the Constitution. The second reading is scheduled for February 11.
