Vladimir Putin should be President for life. The head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov expressed such an opinion during a broadcast on the TV channel "Russia 24", while commenting on his recent statement regarding establishing a monarchy in Russia.
According to the head of the Republic, he had in mind not a change of the constitutional order, but rather of the authority of the leader. "I have cited certain analogies about the fact that, for example, if our President Vladimir Vladimirovich had been in charge during the Soviet Union, I am sure that the Union would not have collapsed. If in tsarist Russia there was a man at the time of this nature - smart, determined, who is rooting for the country – then some positive things would also have happened,” the politician noted.
On March 14, Aksyonov said that Russia does not need democracy in such a form as is presented by Western media. "We have our own traditional Orthodox values. Democracy should be under certain, proper limits," he added, stressing that "today Russia needs a monarchy. "
