MOSCOW, March 5 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin is concerned over the growth of extremist crimes. “In the previous year the number of extremist crimes went up about 12% against 2011,” the president said at a meeting of the Prosecutor General’s Office collegium on Tuesday.
“Several radical groups are acting quite impudently, they are holding public actions, are disseminating criminal ideas in the Internet and are recruiting their supporters almost openly,” he said. “Your direct duty is to respond absolutely strictly to the attempt to instigate interethnic and interreligious strife, the propaganda of xenophobia and chauvinism,” the president told the prosecutors. He noted that the prosecutor’s offices should act consistently with the basis on the laws and without permitting any double standards and bias.
Vladimir Putin noted that over 4,500 corruption crimes were opened in 2012 and demanded from the Prosecutor General’s Office to fight more actively with the corruption.
“The prosecutor’s offices should make a more tangible contribution in the settlement of such topical task as the reduction in the level of corruption in the country,” the president said.
“In the previous year over 4,500 corruption crimes were opened over the criminal materials of the prosecutor’s inquiries,” Putin said. Meanwhile, “the inquiries in the lawfulness of the use of state property, supervision over the observance of the laws in the placement of the state contracts should be made more efficient,” Putin said. “The supervision should be toughened over the observance of the laws by the agencies, which are involved in the search activities and the preliminary investigation in the criminal cases over corruption crimes,” the president added.
