Voting on amendments: the Russian system is unique in the world.

Author: Dmitry Kiselev

amendments to the Constitution of Russia, for which we will vote soon, on 1 July, attracted the attention of the so-called Venice Commission (fully — the European Commission for democracy through law of the Council of Europe). It is a European Advisory body, which deals with the analysis of constitutional norms in the member States of the Council of Europe.

the Venice Commission did not like the amendment to article 79 of the basic law priority provisions of our Constitution over international Treaty provisions if they contradict the Constitution. The Europeans realized: so in fact after July 1, Russia will not carry out the decisions of the European court of human rights (ECHR), the body is not always the host against Russia objective and impartial judgement. And in General would be better advised USA. There was a time not notice any of the international treaties and do what they want. Grab people around the world and put in their prison under American law, a fine of billions for European banks and automakers, tearing the international agreement, as it did with the ABM Treaty, the intermediate range, with a deal on Iran sanctions blackmailing the largest companies in Europe and nobody in Europe even could not do anything with it all to do.

So July 1, Russian citizens themselves will decide what changes to the Constitution to take and what rules should be a priority. Moreover, the pandemic coronavirus proved once again how important for the country, for example, the amendments about the socially oriented state. Of course, no less important and political, because in crisis situations in the country should be a stable government, capable of acting quickly and effectively. President Putin and the government during a pandemic coronavirus just showed such coordinated work. As will be further, nobody knows, but the amendment about the opportunity for Vladimir Putin to run for another presidential term in 2024 will definitely add Russian political system stability, reliability and certainty, and will allow in the coming years at all levels of government to work calmly, not looking at the future elections. And even Vladimir Putin himself will decide whether he will go for a new term. While very important opportunity.
