According to insiders, the federal authorities are currently considering three possible dates of voting that had to be postponed in the wake of the novel coronavirus infection.

Chances are the experts responsible for the preparation of the all-Russian plebiscite on amendments to the Constitution will have to get back to work in mid-May. The media reports this with reference to the sources close to Russian political circles. According to well-informed sources, the federal authorities are currently considering three possible dates of voting, which they had to be postponed due to the novel coronavirus infection.

Tsargrad TV said in the light of it that although the curve of the disease had not flattened yet and there were no signs of a stable decline in the incidence, political life in Russia had begun to recover gradually. Chances are the experts supervising the preparation for the all-Russian vote on amendments to the Constitution will have to get back to work in mid-May.

It should be recalled that earlier, Vladimir Putin announced that the most important event in Russia over recent years had been postponed. The vote on amendments to the Constitution is not the only event that the authorities had to postpone because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation has also affected a truly landmark event, the 9 May Victory Day parade in Moscow's Red Square in honor of the 75th anniversary since victory over Nazi Germany in 1945, which the authorities decided to put off until an unspecified future date.
