ST. PETERSBURG, December 8. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday he believed Russia’s legal system was among the world’s best-developed.

At a meeting with judges of Russia’s Constitutional Court, he said he had met in the previous week human rights activists who were rather critical about Russia’s court system.

“There is nothing untypical about this, it happens in all public organizations which keenly react to any injustice, to any improper execution of the law. Such things happen in any country, and ours is not an exception,” he said. “But I still think that our legal and court system is one of the best-developed in the world.” He admitted that there are some problems but, at the same time, there are grounds to be proud of the Constitutional Court judges and the entire system.

Rounding up the meeting, he congratulated those present at the meeting on the Day of Constitution to be marked on December 12.
