Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday signed a legislation that could potentially keep him in power till 2036, and the move has prompted a slew of reactions online.

Under the previous constitution, Putin, who has already been in power for more than two decades, would have been required to step down after his second consecutive term ends in 2024.

However, the amendment, approved by Russians in a nationwide vote last year, will now allow the 68-year-old to run for two more six-year presidential terms.

While many called the amendment a major overhaul of the constitution and abuse of power, others reacted to the matter with memes and jokes. Take a look at some of the reactions here:

Putin has been either the President or Prime Minister of Russia for more than 20 years. This is the longest period a leader has been in power since Joseph Stalin, who was Secretary-General of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (1922-1953) and the premier of the Soviet Union from 1941-1953.
