MOSCOW, February 22. /TASS/. The Russian Constitution does not hold back women in any way from becoming the country’s president, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
"As for female presidential candidates, the answer is very simple - the Constitution of the Russian Federation - it provides a precise explanation of who can run for the presidency," Peskov stated.
"[Russia’s constitution stipulates that those running for the office of president] men and women are eligible, there is no separation," he added.
Sergey Mironov, leader of A Just Russia party, said earlier that his party could nominate a female candidate for Russia’s 2018 presidential election.
