Parliamentary democracy would be

YAROSLAVL. Sept 10 (Interfax) - A parliamentary democracy is an unacceptable form of governance for Russia, President Dmitry Medvedev said.

Speaking at a meeting with political analysts in Yaroslavl he said that he spent the first two years changing the political structure at the federal and regional levels.

"But there is no need for radical changes. Not because they are not allowed but because they are unnecessary. They keep telling us about parliamentary democracy. Our Kyrgyz friends have embarked on that path. But for Russia, and I am afraid, for Kyrgyzstan too, a parliamentary democracy is a catastrophe," Medvedev said.
