Russian government resigns. Because why the fuck wouldn't they?
Reports from the Kremlin today confirm that the sitting Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and his government have resigned, following new proposed legislation from Vladimir Pu tin. Surprisingly, none of the Russian politicians wanted to stick around to try and shoot down the proposed laws.
Putin, the current Russian President, former Prime Minister and also former President - has begun the process of changing constitutional laws which would allow him greater control of the nation if he were to become Prime Minister again.
Despite featuring regularly at the top of a list of global villains, constant scandals, political assassinations and just being genuinely terrifying - President Putin continues to enjoy record popularity in Russia and is expected to easily resume the position of Prime Minister once his presidential term is finished.
