Putin Hits The Gas On Russian Political Upending

Russian President Vladimir Putin sped up the shake-up of Russia’s political system on Monday.

In a surprise move last week, Putin announced plans for sweeping governmental reforms. Long-time ally Dmitry Medvedev then resigned as prime minister along with the government.

Putin’s proposed changes are widely seen as giving him scope to retain influence once his term expires in 2024.
