Attempts to destabilize situation in Russia under democratic mottos to be curbed - Medvedev

MOSCOW. Nov 12 (Interfax) - Any attempts to destabilize the situation in Russia "under democratic mottos" will be curbed, said Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

"The strengthening of democracy does not mean the weakening of law and order," Medvedev said in an annual address to the Federal Assembly on Thursday.

"Any attempts to shatter the situation, destabilize the government, and split society under democratic mottos will be prevented," he said.

"As the guarantor of the Constitution, I will continue to do all I can to strengthen the institutions of democracy in our country," he said.
