President of Russia Vladimir Putin has expressed gratitude to the Russians for voting in favor of the constitutional amendments. “I have talked about the need for constitutional amendments several times. Here in Russia there is improvement of the political system and consolidation of social guarantees, strengthening of sovereignty, territorial integrity and our spiritual, historical and moral values that unite generations,” Putin stated and added that the country is still in the stage of formation and is in need of stability.
“We are vulnerable in many regards. As the people say, everything was done hastily. We need internal stability and time to strengthen the country and all of its institutions. And so, once again, I thank those who voted in favor of the constitutional amendments,” Putin said, addressing Russians.
