MOSCOW, May 27. /TASS/. No decision has been made yet on the date for the anticipated nationwide vote on amendments to the Russian Constitution, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"No decision has yet been made on the matter," he said.
A presidential law on amending the Russian Constitution was adopted in March 2020 but the amendments will take effect only if approved in a nationwide vote. The vote was initially scheduled to take place on April 22 but had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Russian President Vladimir Putin pointed out that a new date would be set depending on the coronavirus situation and based on expert recommendations. On May 21, Russia’s Central Election Commission issued a statement on resuming preparations for the nationwide vote.
