Addressing concerns that his return to the presidency after
four years will stymie liberal reforms, Putin told an investment
forum in St Petersburg that he would tackle corruption and try

“We have worked out an entire programme of large-scale
reform. It has received broad public support. I see its
fulfillment as my primary task as president,” Putin said in an
opening address the forum.

reference to deals in the past that allowed a few businessmen to
amass wealth and power.
