In the OP commented on reports of coercion to vote

At the moment, known to only a few cases with evidence of coercion to vote on constitutional amendments, said the head of the working group of the RF Public chamber on public control over the voting Maxim Grigoriev.

"Actually at the moment known to only a few cases where there are signs that are scanned for signs of coercion to vote", - said Grigoriev on the briefing.

In addition, even the reports of such stories, which are often fakes, never speaks of the compulsion to vote "for" or "against", he said.

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.
