the Main principle is familiar to the Nenets way of life not to interfere. Among the amendments to the Constitution just is the one that protects the cultural identity of all Russian peoples and ethnic groups.

“If he will start to rebuild something, then people will start to do the same. See what you can do to change everything,” said the herder Sergei Hudi.

a Helicopter took all the necessary right in the tent, built a site, and now the cubicle people started to come in a leather jumper with hoods-salami.

“For us it is very important that the citizens were clear not only of the amendment but those procedures for voting, who will accompany the entire process so that citizens understand that it is safe,” said Andrei Klishas, a co-chair of the working group on amendments to the Constitution.

As we remember, the decision to vote on the Constitution as a Victory Parade, and was made solely based on the opinions of health officers and of the experts ‘ recommendations.

“date of July 1, here is very significant, because even twice in two weeks, two more incubation periods that are a milestone and will allow us, obviously, if such a rate, without disruption we will go on, and reason to doubt it no, to achieve optimal performance”, — said Anna Popova, head of Rospotrebnadzor, chief state sanitary doctor of the Russian Federation.

the System was tested in three Metropolitan constituencies, and it works perfectly. In Moscow you can apply on the website and the portal in Nizhny Novgorod — yet only on the portal of public services. In two regions it has already made more than half a million users.

“It’s really anonymous and safe. This is an additional convenience for the citizen who wants to choose how to vote, to come to the site, or by electronic means”, — said Andrey Gneushev, Deputy Governor of Nizhny Novgorod region.

But this is only one of many ways that can benefit citizens. So, each phase will provide the necessary number of ballots.

They differ in shades of color depending on the region — and everyone — under special control, an outsider even in the hands not take. But the form is still clearly visible. The Bulletin has only one question: “do you Approve of the changes in the Russian Constitution?”
