MOSCOW, November 10 (RIA Novosti) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday that the government will continue measures to overcome corruption, and pledged to improve existing legislation.
"The battle against corruption requires the utmost attention," he said at a ceremony marking Police Day at the Kremlin.
"For this, as you know, a legal base has been formed, and we are only now beginning to use it - it is not ideal, but we must learn to work with it."
"I can tell you openly that this work will continue," he said, pledging to approve amendments swiftly when necessary.
He also called on the police force to help fight corruption.
"The irreproachable behavior of police officers is needed to prevent violations of law and improve law-abiding culture among our citizens," he said.
