DAVOS, January 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that most of the 50,000 corruption cases in the country would end with guilty verdicts.

“Fifty thousand cases have been opened on charges of corruption,” Medvedev told Bloomberg. “I think it’s a lot. A considerable part of them will reach the court and end with guilty verdicts. What else is this if not the fight against corruption?”

He stressed that corruption is “a state of mentality” and “not only government officials”.

“Corruption also means those who bring money. Corruption in our country exists not only in the executive branch but also in everyday life. Unfortunately, it exists among doctors, teachers, traffic police and some other groups. We must fight corruption not only at the top but at the middle level as well,” the prime minister said.
