Russian President, Vladimir Putin has ‘reset’ some laws to allow him to stay in power until 2036.

Putin has signed a law that will allow him to run for the presidency twice more in his lifetime.

Putin has been Russia’s most powerful politician since he became President in 2000.

The new law limits Russian citizens to two presidential terms in their lifetime.

However, the law specifically does not count terms served until it entered into force, meaning that Putin’s past four terms (including the current term) do not count. He can serve two more.

Presidential terms have also been lengthened to six years. Putin’s current term will expire in 2024.
