Before 1 January 2020, will any change be made to the Russian Constitution that would allow Vladimir Putin to remain in a leadership role after his current term?

The Russian Constitution limits presidents to two consecutive terms, but there has been speculation that future constitutional changes could allow Putin to remain in power past 2024 (Associated Press, NY Times). Examples of constitutional changes that could count include, but are not limited to, revised term limits or the creation of a new position or government body.
