MOSCOW, December 12 (Itar-Tass) —— President Vladimir Putin welcomed the Constitutional Court’s firm stance in favour of Russian statehood.
In his Address to the Federal Assembly on Wednesday, December 12, Putin said the Constitution is a living instrument but “it needs to be handled very carefully to keep it stable”.
“A strong and firm position of the Constitutional Court in protecting the constitutional principles of our state often provides the foothold for our country because diluting and rocking the fundamental law would undoubtedly lead to diluting and rocking of the state,” Putin said.
Constitutional Court Chairman Valery Zorkin said the Court had never acted in an extremist manner, even when Russia was in dire straits.
The Constitution has not changed for many years, which “helps keep it stable”.
