Russian government resigns as Putin plans future

Russia's government has resigned, hours after President Vladimir Putin proposed sweeping constitutional changes that could prolong his stay in power.

...

"These changes, when they are adopted... will introduce substantial changes not only to an entire range of articles of the constitution, but also to the entire balance of power, the power of the executive, the power of the legislature, the power of judiciary," Mr Medvedev said of Mr Putin's proposals.

"In this context... the government in its current form has resigned."


Another strongman would-be autocrat changes the constitution to give himself unfettered power for life. Seems to be in vogue right now.

well, I"m disappointed in comrade vladimir, I thought he was going to follow the pattern he himself set, two terms in power, then one term with a puppet, reheat and run again.

I was guessing he'd retire from the government and pursue his unmatched talents of deep-sea diving, horseback riding, and professional hockey.

I miss proper dictators. Men who just said "fuck you, I'm being president forever and I'll kill you if you disagree" rather than jumping through hoops and pretending to have a democratic mandate.

You mean people like the libyan general aftar? or syrian assad? there still are some, and the russians seem to have a specialty of cozying them up
