Forced anti-crisis measures must end gradually - Medvedev

MOSCOW. June 29 (Interfax) - The state-supported anti-crisis measures must be gradually wrapped up, President Dmitry Medvedev said.

"State support on the previous easy terms cannot be provided for too much longer," Medvedev said at a conference on the budget policy for 2011-2013.

Medvedev also said that a significant share of the federal budget "must be put into a package of long-term national programs starting in 2012."
