This past Spring Russia amended its constitution with the Duma (legislature), the Constitutional Court and the 85 federal subjects approving it.
Over the last few days in what Russian President Vladimir Putin calls a "confirmatory plebiscite" some 70% of the Russian people voted overwhelmingly in favor of the amendments.
The plebiscite on the amendments wasn't necessary but Putin decided it was necessary to get public legitimacy.
This piece is not a polemic on the positives or negatives of what Russia has done to amend its constitution. That is for Russia and its people to decide.
