MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— An average size of bribes offered to officers of the Federal Drug Control Service is 200,000 rubles (the exchange rate is 32.11 rubles to the dollar), Yevgeny Kutsenko from the Service’s Internal Security Department said at the Friday meeting of the Service Public Council.
Operatives make up 70-80% of Service officers found guilty of corruption crimes, and 10-20% are detectives, he said.
Kutsenko said he did not rule out a growth of corruption at the Drug Control Service because of the increased salaries of Interior Ministry employees. “There may be personnel flight from the Drug Control Service, too,” he said.
