MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 45,000 corruption-related crimes were exposed in Russia in the nine months of 2012, deputy chief of the Russian Interior Ministry’s economic security department Sergei Solopov said on Wednesday.
“In the nine months of 2012, officers of the economic security department exposed about 10,000 state officials involved in corruption-related crimes. Some 8,000 were brought to criminal liability. The total sum of damage incurred by corruption-related crimes exceeded 14 billion roubles,” he told journalists.
According to Solopov, officers of his department exposed 25 lawmakers of legislatures of various level, five regional ministers, 48 heads of district administrations,17 heads of municipalities, and 15 heads of territorial authorities from September 2011.
Commenting on the dynamics of corruption-related crimes, he noted that “the Interior Ministry no longer uses static comparison techniques.” “The key task of the ministry’s economic security department is to expose and remove from office state official who hinder work,” he said.
“An average bribe sum in Russia is now about 60,000 roubles, while an average bribe sum exposed by the ministry’s economic security department exceeds one million roubles,” noted the chief of one of the department’s sectors.
