There is no suspense in the referendum. Putin has been re-elected? Trump also wants to be re-elected, but the road ahead is slim
According to today’s Russian television station July 1, the Russian referendum on constitutional amendments has ended. The Russian Election Commission announced after counting 95%of the votes that 78%of voters support the amendment of the constitution. The President of RussiaPutin won a big victory.
The news of the success of the constitutional amendment soon attracted attention, and various media outlets scrambled to report it. Due to the current Russia-US relations, the US media have become”34.
CNN News reported that although 78%of people voted in favor, There are a large number of people who do not want to see Putin re-elected, and quoted the Russian opposition person Alexei Navani to question the results of the Russian vote.
Alexey Navarni believes that the referendum on constitutional amendments is &34; lies&34; because the Russian government has opened up to prevent the new crown virus from infecting voters In the channel of online voting, Navani believes that Putin has made a move in the results of the online voting.
Not long ago, CNN also published an article accusing Russia of conducting a referendum in the epidemic, which is irresponsible for the safety of voters.
But these reports do not have any substantial impact on Putin, This constitutional amendment After success, Putin’s term of office is expected to increase by 12 years.
According to the previous Constitution, Putin’s term of office expires in 2024 and he cannot continue to participate in the presidential election, but After this constitutional amendment The term of Putin’s term can be extended to 2036, and he has been in power longer than Stalin.
Since taking office in 2000, Putin has been in power for 20 years. Although the economic situation is still not optimistic, Russia has come out of the storms of the year.
Such a result is inseparable from Putin’s iron fist and popular support. Due to the impact of the new crown epidemic this year, Putin’s approval rating has fallen to the lowest in history, but it is still as high as 59%. The support rate of US President Trump is only 41%.
But this situation of &34; one-sided &34; also caused dread and jealousy in the Western world. NATO, led by the European Union and the United States, has taken sanctions against Russia, which is one of the important reasons why the Russian economy has been difficult to take off.
However, Putin has not compromised, and has always taken a tough attitude in the face of &34; to chase and intercept &34; and has inspired the public Patriotic emotions. The newly revised Constitution also emphasizes patriotism. This is also the idea of unity that Putin has always implemented.
For this year’s election, Trump can be said to have exhausted his thoughts, dreaming and hoping to increase his support rate among voters. At present, he has little hope of re-election. Putin, however, easily obtained the chance to be re-elected until 2036. I don’t know what Trump would think.
