The bill consists of 11 chapters and 65 articles. The document specifies in detail by what mechanisms this unity will be achieved. For example, a large block of new norms is devoted to the heads of the subjects.

The constitution (charter) of a subject, taking into account historical, national and other traditions, may provide for an additional title for the position of a senior official. Such a name cannot contain words and phrases that make up the name of the position of the head of state – the President of the Russian Federation, ”the document says.
