MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Correctional Service /FSIN/ and Ministry of Justice should continue the reform of the penitentiary system, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with Russia’s five leading television channels on Friday.
The reform has caused many changes, he said, but “it is clear that it is impossible to change the situation within 2–3 years.”
“I should be a reasonable optimist here,” the prime minister said.
Commenting on the recent events in Kopeisk, Medvedev said “don’t make Lambs of God out of those who started the insurrection,” though it is necessary to find out “if the security were involved in violations.”
