After the State Duma approved the law on zeroing the presidential terms, the document was also approved by the Federation Council. Now, those who served as president of Russia before the amendments to the Constitution came into force are not subject to the ban on the presidency for only two terms.

According to "Merchant", This law will give the current President of Russia Vladimir Putin to be elected twice more. After approval by the Federation Council, the document must be signed by the head of state.

Also, the law establishes new requirements for the chairman of the CEC and deputies. A citizen from 30 years old will be able to lead the Central Election Commission, and the deputies must permanently reside in Russia.

Constitutional amendments were adopted in July 2020. They were supported by the majority of Russians. In total, 206 amendments were made, including the zeroing of presidential terms.
