    Russian prime minister and ENTIRE government resign after Putin speech

    Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday that his government was resigning to give President Vladimir Putin room to carry out the changes he wants to make to the constitution.

    In announcing the major constitutional reforms during a state of the nation address, Putin signaled he was working to create a new governing position in which to serve after his term ends, leaving details of the reforms vague and open to speculation.

    According to a translated statement posted to his Twitter account, Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny believes the true goal of Putin's reforms is to remain “the sole leader for life, taking ownership of an entire country, and appropriating wealth to himself and his friends... in his regime.”

    The entire Russian government abruptly resigned immediately after Putin announced his proposed changes to the country’s balance of power.
