Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday he will sign a law later in the day to reform the Interior Ministry.
"Today I will sign a law improving the activity of the Interior Ministry that will envisage organizational reform, amendments to some financial issues and certain legal as well as staffing changes," Medvedev said in an interview with three state television channels.
He pledged radical changes to the Interior Ministry's structure, but said responsible workers will retain their jobs.
"It [the Interior Ministry] undoubtedly needs major, drastic changes, and they will be undertaken. But we must preserve the core of the ministry's staff, those who are capable of responsible work," Medvedev said.
