He has noted, in particular, indistinct distribution of powers between the president and the Cabinet of Ministers, a list in favor of executive power, differentiation of powers of regions and the federal center.

Photo: Ekaterina Shtukina/tass In the Russian constitution is shortcomings which "are quite remediable by pointed changes". The chairman of the Constitutional court Valery Zorkin has said it in an interview to Rossiyskaya Gazeta. Among such shortcomings Zorkin has noted not absolutely accurate distribution of powers between the head of state and the cabinet, a list in favor of an executive branch of the power and differentiation of powers of federal and regional power bodies. Besides, shortcomings are connected with determination of the status of presidential administration and also powers of prosecutor's office. How will Zorkin's statements for possible "pointed changes" in the constitution be apprehended?
