A proposal has been made to the House of Representatives of the US Congress not to recognize the current head of state, Vladimir Putin, as President of the Russian Federation, if he decides to run for a new term in 2024. The resolution will be advisory in nature if adopted.

The authors of the document believe that Putin is in power due to electoral violations, which means that his re-election is illegal. The resolutions and amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation of the last year are named as violating the laws.

"Any attempt by President Vladimir Putin to remain in office after the end of his current and last term on May 7, 2024 should entail non-recognition by the United States," - the document says.

Let us remind you that the amendments to the Constitution were made in 2020 following the results of the all-Russian referendum. On April 5, Putin signed a law to bring the electoral legislation in line with the amendments to the Constitution. For example, Dmitry Medvedev, according to the innovations, can run for president two more times, although earlier the head of state could hold this post for no more than two consecutive terms.
