President for life? Kremlin pours cold water on Kadyrov’s idea of Putin leading forever

The Kremlin has rejected a suggestion from Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov that Vladimir Putin should be installed as president for life.

The constitution does not provide for such a position,” said Dmitry Peskov, the official presidential spokesman.

Kadyrov proposed Putin’s lifelong presidency during a meeting of the Chechen Republic Coronavirus Operational Headquarters.

Today, who can replace him? There is no such political leader on a global scale. We must be proud of this.”
