MOSCOW, September 28. /TASS/. The Russian authorities are doing everything in their power to bring those who are guilty of murders, including the assassinations of journalists, to account, President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with US TV anchorman Charles Rose for the CBS and PBS channels.
"There can be no democracy without observing the law and everyone must observe it - that is the most basic and important thing that we all should remember," Putin said. "As for those tragic incidents as losses of lives, including those of the journalists, unfortunately, it happens in all countries around the world."
"But if it occurs in Russia, we take every step possible to ensure that the perpetrators are found, identified and punished. We will work on all issues in the same way," he said.
"But the most important thing is that we will continue improving our political system so that people and every citizen will feel that they can influence the life of state and society, they can influence the authorities, and so that the authorities will be aware of their responsibility before those people who gave their confidence to the representatives of the authorities in the elections," Putin said.
