Vladimir Putin signs law to remain Russia’s President till 2036

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday signed a legislation that could potentially keep him in power till 2036, and the move has prompted a slew of reactions online.

Under the previous constitution, Putin, who has already been in power for more than two decades, would have been required to step down after his second consecutive term ends in 2024.

However, the amendment, approved by Russians in a nationwide vote last year, will now allow the 68-year-old to run for two more six-year presidential terms.
