Russian President Vladimir Putin will address Russians on Tuesday at about 14:00 Moscow time in the run-up to the main voting day on Russian constitutional amendments, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

“Yes, it is true, Putin will make a televised address to Russians, this will take place at about 14:00 Moscow time,” he said.

The nationwide vote on amendments to the Russian Constitution kicked off on June 25. Though the Russian president’s decree sets July 1 as the official voting day, Russians were also provided with the opportunity to cast their ballots on June 25-30 in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

According to the Central Election Commission’s decision, polling stations across the country will be open from 8:00 to 20:00 between June 25 and July 1. People can also cast their ballots at home or in temporary locations set up in residential areas. In addition, online voting is underway in Moscow and the Nizhny Novgorod Region. The vote count will begin after the voting process is over at 8:00 local time on July 1.
