President Vladimir Putin responded to criticism of the Communist Party on amendments to the Constitution. He did not agree with the party that the changes would strengthen the presidential dictatorship and strengthen oligarchic rule.

In a programme "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin ", the president noted that all the political forces of the country have the right to their point of view, as this provides an opportunity to once again look at the proposals, and people to make decisions. However, Putin did not support the “communists” opinion, saying that the president, on the contrary, would lose some of his powers if the amendments were adopted. In his opinion, this will be a step towards the democratization of society.

Putin also recalled that the “Communists" themselves advocated the dictatorship of the proletariat, but in reality in the USSR there was a dictatorship of one party to be enshrined in the Constitution.

Constitution Amendment Voting will be held on July 1. Putin approved the idea make this day off. VTsIOM experts conducted a study on the attitude of Russians to amendments to the Constitution - 55% of respondents said that approve of their adoption.
