Dmitry Medvedev invokes Lenin, says what is going on in Cyprus is the "stealing of the stolen"

Meeting deputies at his residence outside the city, Russia's Prime Minister said there was a need to "understand what this story turns into in the long run, what the consequences for the international financial and monetary system will be—and thus, for our own interests as well."

Mr Medvedev prefaced his comments by addressing Deputy Prime Minister, Igor Shuvalov, with the words: "Let us, Igor Ivanovich, talk about what's happening with Cyprus. The stealing of the stolen is continuing there, I think."
