Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law paving the way for him to run for two more presidential terms, potentially extending his rule until 2036. Putin, who turns 69 this year, is currently serving his fourth presidential term, which is set to end in 2024. The new legislation, announced on Monday, could allow him to serve two more six-year terms, should he choose to stand for and win reelection both times. The new law formalizes the results of last year’s referendum on amendments to Russia’s constitution. Previously, Putin’s efforts to stay in power have attracted mass protests and criticism from overseas. Tap the link in our bio to learn more.
