The CEC learned about the preparation of provocations to vote on amendments

Provocations to vote on amendments to the Constitution are prepared, the CEC is aware of them, said the head of the Central election Commission, Ella Pamfilova.

"Provocations are prepared (to vote on the amendment - ed.) we know about them," - said Pamfilova to the information center of the CEC.

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.
