Anti-corruption policy in Russia

more+
less-

Until recently Russia did not have complex and integrated anti-corruption policy. Legislative regulations were uncoordinated and consisted in the Russian Criminal Code defining several corruption crimes, certain restrictions and additional obligations imposed on state and municipal officials by federal laws in general (Federal law ‘On Civil Service of the Russian Federation’, Federal law ‘On Municipal Service of the Russian Federation’, etc.) and by federal laws regulating professional activity of certain categories of state officers (Federal law ‘On Status of Military’, Federal law ‘On Militia’, etc.). However, reality demonstrated that these legislative measures are insufficient and struggling against corruption remained on the top of the agenda. Success in this fight is a prerequisite for Russia's further integration into the global economy, transparency of internal governmental and economic procedures and an increase of the country's attractiveness to foreign investors.
