Dmitry Medvedev urges to start cleaning municipalities

author: Eugene Rakhimkulov

The President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev urged to start “cleaning” the municipalities in his pre-New Year interview. As he said, this sector of bureaucracy is the most corrupted.

“The federal authority is cleaner in this respect and worthless people in the regional authority also can be rarely met but the municipal level includes many people, living by another code than a state employee has to, so the municipalities have to be “cleaned”. At that we have to remember that the functionaries with unclean hands often have the budges and the membership cards of the main political force in the country. It doesn’t mean we have to keep our eyes shut to their actions. Such people have to be unmasked and expelled from the party’s lines”.
