MOSCOW, April 25 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin has pledged that not a single official, regardless of the position he or she might occupy, will get off scot-free if suspected of any offence.
During Putin’s question-and-answer session on Thursday, there came a remark that high-ranking officials have a free hand to indulge in “big theft.”
“No one can do it, whether it be big theft or a pilferage,” Putin said. “No one.”
“If there are grounds to suspect an official, even the most high-ranking one, of violating the rules and laws, such information is immediately checked by the police,” he stressed.
