Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin took part in the vote on amendments to the Constitution on Wednesday, APA reports citing TASS.

"Today we are choosing Russia’s future. I voted for our country’s economic and social development, for preserving its history, traditions and values," Mishustin said.

Earlier on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin also took part in the voting at a ballot station in the Russian Academy of Sciences building in southwestern Moscow.

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.
