At a meeting with members of the working group on preparing proposals for amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, President Vladimir Putin explained the meaning of the proposed changes. According to him, they will not touch on the fundamental foundations of the Constitution, but will affect the procedure for appointing the Prime Minister, his deputies and federal ministers.

Putin noted that Russia will remain a presidential republic, but now the country's government will work more closely with parliament, so the constitutional status of the State Council remains to be determined. According to Putin, the president should retain serious powers related to the possible removal from office of those who violate the law and unscrupulously perform their official duties.

Also, the Constitution intends to consolidate the provision that the minimum wage in Russia cannot be less than the subsistence level. In addition, Putin proposed to secure a guarantee of decent pensions and regular indexation of pensions to residents.

In a message to the Federal Assembly, Putin proposed make changes into the Constitution and vote for the Russians for them. Bills on amendments to be submitted to the State Duma in the next two months, and they plan to conduct an all-Russian vote on them until 1 May.
