Trutnev voted for amendments to the Constitution

Deputy Prime Minister, presidential Plenipotentiary envoy in the far East Yuri Trutnev voted for amendments to the Constitution of Russia in Moscow at the polling station No. 3110, noting the importance for him personally of keeping the family "in its traditional form".

A nationwide vote on amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation was scheduled for 22 April, but then postponed because of the epidemic of coronavirus in the country. Later, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on a new date for voting on 1 July. Because of the need to take into account the epidemiological situation and the security of the population, it was decided that the Russians will be able to vote all week from 25 June to 1 July.

"I was born in Russia, live in Russia, I live in Russia. With the adoption of the amendments, our country becomes stronger, so I support", - said Trutnev.

The Deputy Prime Minister said that for him the most important amendments related to the territorial integrity of the country.

"It's the items associated with the priority of Russian law over international. Honestly, when I was faced with the fact that we are unable directly to resist in some international agreements, has always had a strange feeling because I believe that we are a sovereign country, and, of course, domestically, our legislation should have priority," he added.

"Well, the preservation of the family in its traditional form for me is also important", - said Deputy Prime Minister.
