Inviolability of Private Property in Russia Must Be Guaranteed - Medvedev

YAROSLAVL. Sept 8 (Interfax) - Russia must ensure inviolability of private property, President Dmitry Medvedev said at the World Policy Forum in Yaroslavl on Thursday.

"Inviolability of private property must be guaranteed. We tried to create a society without the rich in the past. That experiment led to stagnation, poverty and disintegration of the country," he said.

"We will not allow that to happen again, no matter what populist slogans certain politicians may offer," he said.

Lawful economic activity of citizens is protected by the state, the president said.

"Every person in this country must have a chance for high revenues. Inviolability of private property must be guaranteed even if irritates someone," he said.
