MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev as before opposes returning of the regulations allowing low alcohol percentage in a driver's blood, though he admits it is a debatable issue.
Explaining his position, the premier said in his televised interview that the return of allowed percentage could open a door for corruption. And if it is allowed, many in Russia will understand it as they are "allowed to drink and drive".
"I do not support the return, it is not for our country, as well as possession of arms," Medvedev said.
