The Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, confirmed that Russian President, Vladimir Putin, will announce a new date for voting on constitutional amendments at a time he will consider appropriate based on health conditions.
"These decisions are taken by the Russian president, and you know that he calls on everyone not to be drawn behind the axiom," Peskov said, in an interview broadcast on "Russia-1" channel on Sunday, stressing the need to rely on accurate data for scientists, experts and stakeholders.
He added that Putin "will announce a new date at a time that he deems appropriate."
Peskov pointed out, however, that the meetings held by the Russian President via a video bridge with no personal meetings being justified on the basis of the need to protect him from the risk of contracting the virus, stressing that these measures do not affect his agenda.
Putin had previously submitted an initiative to implement a package of amendments to the Russian constitution approved by the country's parliament, and it was planned to organize a general vote in the country on the implementation of these measures on April 22, but the authorities took a decision to postpone it to another date due to the outbreak of the new Corona virus.
