How the Republic becomes an Empire?

Russian MPs vote for longer presidency

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's lower house of parliament approved on Friday a constitutional amendment extending the presidential term of office to six years from four.

The amendment was passed on final reading by the State Duma lower house by 392 votes to 57. Kremlin critics say the change could be part of a plan for ex-president Vladimir Putin to return to his old job, although officials have denied this.

The chamber, dominated by Putin's ruling United Russia party, also voted overwhelmingly to extend its own term to five years from four.
Medvedev is sooooo Putin's bitch, it's not even funny anymore
