Presidential inauguration is distinct from prior ceremonies because both the acting and newly elected presidents are set to participate. This is a first on Russia’s political scene. In 2000, Boris Yeltsin attended Vladmir Putin’s inauguration, but he had already relinquished his authority in December 1999.
