Russian prime minister submits resignation to President Vladimir Putin

Russia’s Putin warns of possible global war

Hours after he made the proposals, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev resigned and Putin named the little-known head of Russia's tax service to replace him.

"He wants to organize a power transition while retaining control over the political situation for the foreseeable future", said Makarkin, citing the example of Nursultan Nazarbaev in Kazakhstan, who resigned in March after almost 30 years as president but continues to head the ruling party and chair that country's influential Security Council.

The unexpected resignation means Russian Federation will get a new prime minister.

Notably, the Russian Constitution doesn't allow anyone to serve as the country's president for more than two consecutive terms.

Mr Medvedev had also "become toxic", Ms Stanovaya said, and needed to make way for a new prime minister. Speaking Wednesday before top officials and lawmakers, Putin said that the authorities need to do more to encourage new births and support young families.

He said that constitutional changes must be put to a nationwide referendum. In that annual presidential address to Russian lawmakers, Vladimir Putin suggests shifting the power to appoint the Prime Minister, and the whole Government, to parliament.

President Vladimir Putin has introduced changes which could dramatically affect Russia's worldwide image and respond to decades-long criticism of the country's political path from the global mainstream media, say worldwide observers discussing the president's historic decision.

Mr Mishustin, the 53-year-old nominee for prime minister, is a relatively obscure figure who has run Russia's tax service since 2010. Especially Vladimir Putin According to the current constitution, the president needs to secure approval from the lower house of parliament to appoint the head of the government, and it is within presidential rights to then appoint all deputies and ministers.

Putin replied, "We were able to see that you are a brilliant dancer", to which Bush responded, "We'll leave it at that".

Only six schools have a win in the College Football Playoff , though - Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State and Oregon . Kasmiersky says the trophy will go on permanent display on the LSU campus and a new trophy will be made for next year's game.

Crucially, parliament - which is dominated by the United Russia party that Mr. Putin founded - would choose the prime minister and cabinet, rather than the directly-elected president.

Alexei Makarkin, an analyst at the Moscow-based Center for Political Technologies, said Putin's proposals showed he had decided not to stay on as president but was clearly preparing to maintain his power in another position.

Putin also emphasized the need to amend the constitution to give it a clear priority over worldwide law.

Some have suggested he could remain as a prime minister with increased powers or in a powerful behind-the-scenes role.

He obediently stepped down after just one term as president and let Putin reclaim the top job in what was widely seen as cynical political maneuvering and triggered massive protests in Moscow.

Putin then took over the presidency in 2012 and was reelected previous year.

The shakeup sent shock waves through Russia's political elites who were left pondering what Putin's intentions were and speculating about future Cabinet appointments.

He added that new weapons systems would protect Russia's security "for decades ahead".
