MOSCOW, September 29. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that the U.S. democratic system still has room for improvement. He said as much in an interview with American journalist Charlie Rose for the CBS and PBS TV channels.
"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?" Putin noted. "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."
According to him, the task of the authorities is to see all these problems and react to them timely and properly. "The same applies to Russia. We also have a lot of problems," Putin said. "We will work on all issues in the same way. 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.".
