MOSCOW, September 28. /TASS/. Russia’s political system will be improved for ordinary citizens to be able to influence authorities, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with US TV anchorman Charles Rose for the CBS and PBS channels.
"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, 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.
"A lot can be done, but not everyone immediately succeeds in everything. How long has it taken the democratic process to develop in the United States? Since it was founded. So, do you think that as regards democracy everything is settled now in America? If this were so, there would be no Ferguson issue, right? There would be no other issues of similar kind, there would be no police abuse," he said.
"Our goal is to see all these issues and respond to them timely and properly. The same applies to Russia. We also have a lot of problems," Putin said.
