MOSCOW, April 20 /TASS/. The Russian political system needs new people to keep the country united and peaceful, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a video conference with participants in the primaries of the United Russia party, in which Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev took part.
"You have said that the political system needs new blood. This is exactly what it needs! You are absolutely right," Putin said in reply to a statement by a combat operations veteran, a participant in primaries in Krasnoyarsk.
"To keep the country united and to avoid bloodshed in our country the political system should get new blood. Fresh, interested, promising people should be joining politics - people who know what is to be done and how it is to be done," the president explained.
"The people selected by the United Russia party are mature and well-prepared. They genuinely want to do a good cause in the broadest sense of this word. I am not going to talk about any politics, I just want to say about the sincere desire to work for the good of the people of Russia," Putin concluded wishing success to the primaries’ participants.
Vladimir Putin also said that he hopes the United Russia Party’s primaries will be held in a more civilized way than in other countries.
"As far as your debates are concerned, I do hope that they will be held at a high level of culture, that we will not follow in the footsteps of certain countries of so-called advanced democracy, where candidates keep swearing at each other," Putin said in a video conference with participants in United Russia primaries.
