Russians must learn to perceive the decisions of courts and investigators as legitimate for the country to develop forward, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in a televised interview Saturday.
Answering a question about a high-profile corruption case that has ensnared several top Defense Ministry officials since late last year, Medvedev said that evaluating the Oboronservis scandal was a matter for investigators.
"Either we trust the investigation, the court, or we call every sentence into question," he said during a news program on Russia's state-run television station, Channel One.
Oboronservis, a state-run holding company, has been at the center of a probe into the illegal sale of ministry property by high-ranking government officials since late 2012.
