'Human wave' cannon fodder for Putin ...president since 1999, is why Russia desperately needs enforceable term limits

Putin reset the term limits a few years back and extended the terms a while before that, allowing him to control the country until 2036.

He is still in power because nobody else has the power to say otherwise.

It’s why the quotation marks are more relevant than the word democracy when talking about the RF

There's no democratic process in Russia regardless of the superficial laws you impose. Term limits are pointless when the country is held hostage by the FSB and their cronies.

If the Russian politicians actually wanted term limits and were able to enforce it, we wouldn't be having this discussion right now.
