According to foreign media reports, on the evening of January 15, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev officially announced that the Russian government would resign as a whole, then Putin accepted the resignation application and thanked the members of the government for their efforts. According to Medvedev's explanation, the Russian government's practice is related to the revision of the constitution.
Putin, who will step down as president of Russia in 2024, said in his state of the Union address on Wednesday that he is ready to limit the power of his successor and expand the power of the prime minister and parliament by amending the constitution, according to reports from several Western media.
According to the guardian, Putin is ready to limit the presidency to two terms. France's "France 24" said Putin would also transfer some of the president's important powers to the prime minister and parliament, for example, let the parliament appoint the prime minister and cabinet, no longer appointed by the president.
According to Russian media reports, Putin's move is to better limit the power of senior government officials and make Russia more rule of law. He is also preparing to set stricter national security standards (such as no dual nationality) for senior officials, members of Parliament and judges by amending the constitution so that they can better serve the interests of Russia.
In addition, another key point of Russia's constitutional amendment is that Putin proposed that Russia would abide by relevant international laws and treaties only when international laws and treaties do not violate Russia's constitution and do not limit the freedom and rights of Russian citizens.
