Russia turns to Napoleon for inspiration

Postby FBC-Elvas, Portugal » September 5th, 2016, 10:31 am

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev turns to Napoleon Bonaparte for "inspiration in jumpstarting his country’s economy and establishing a more watertight legal framework", according to news website Lenta.

Speaking at a forum in Russia’s Vladimir region, Medvedev praised the Corsican-born commander’s rule and told a group of students that Russia needed to emulate his success in establishing the so-called Code Napoléon, which is the basis for modern French law.
