"The scope the international terrorist threat has taken, and terrorists' audacity show that we cannot win unless we muster all public and official forces. The cause needs top-notch professionals, patriotic and of irreproachable morals," he said to a Moscow Interior University audience. "Whoever dedicates his life to Motherland's safety must check his proficiency and moral ideals on the touchstone of service duties, and of public hopes for constitutional rights and freedoms to have sure protection."
The university had a gala today as first-year students were taking their oath of allegiance, and fifth-year students, about to graduate, received commissioned officer insignia. Attending the event were Georgy Poltavchenko, presidential envoy plenipotentiary to the Central federal district; Vladimir Lukin, federal human rights commissioner, parliamentarians, top Interior Ministry officers, and police veterans.
