MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev explained that he did not insist on a 500,000-rbl fine for drunk drivers, but he believes the sum should be considerable.
"I did not say that the decision was taken, I said let us discuss it," he said in his televised interview.
"I do not insist for a fine to be such, but it must be weighty," he said. It must be high enough for a driver not to want to sit at the wheel when drunk, Medvedev noted.
