ST.PETERSBURG, November 2. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said various countries should joint forces in the fight against corruption.
"One of the most serious global problems affecting all countries is corruption. It destabilizes national economies, violates human rights, undermines the principles of justice, provokes social tension in the society," the Russian leader noted.
According to him, "only by joining forces we will be able to effectively counter this threat common for all our countries." "Russia is actively involved in the international dialogue on a wide range of issues to combat corruption and is ready to share the experience it has accumulated and the best practices," says Putin’s message of greeting to the participants in the UN Convention against Corruption read out by Kremlin Chief of Staff Sergey Ivanov.
