MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — The fight against corruption in Russia will be continued, and not only within the so-called high-profile cases, RF Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated on Friday in an interview to the national television channels. “The work was launched based on the solid legal framework and, undoubtedly, will be continued,” he stressed answering a question about a number of recent corruption scandals.
“What has happened – is a coincidence of two trends,” the RF prime minister continued. In his view, “the public demand for the fight against corruption” has coincided with the “creation of the regulatory framework that is required for this” and the “political will.” “What has happened now – it’s not accidentally. This is the beginning of the hard work for the eradication of corruption in our country,” Medvedev said. He added that this work “will not be limited just to the ‘high-profile’ cases. There is also everyday corruption.” The prime minister considers it unacceptable that bribes are paid not only to officials, but also to doctors, teachers. “The problem is that it is very difficult to prove corruption offenses,” he added.
“I’ve always said that if we do not bother to launch the fight against corruption ourselves, nobody will do this for us,” Medvedev emphasised.
