ASTANA, November 19. /TASS/. Russia has substantially intensified the fight against corruption in recent years, Prosecutor-General Yury Chaika told reporters on Thursday on the sidelines of the meeting of the CIS Interstate Anti-Corruption Council in Astana, Kazakhstan.
"Over the past two years, the Prosecutor-General’s Office has been keeping impartial crime statistics on whose basis I can confidently say that the fight against corruption in the country has been intensified substantially recently," he said. According to him, over the past 9 months of this year investigators brought charges against corrupt officials to the tune of 30 billion rubles ($460,000), 6 billion of them were reimbursed in the course of the investigation. "Of course, these figures could be higher, but I want to say that they command respect," Chaika said.
According to the prosecutor-general, Russia "has substantially increased the results of work of the prosecution agencies in the reparation of the material damage caused by corrupt crimes. Last year the prosecution agencies’ claims were satisfied to the amount of 1,5 billion rubles ($23 million), which "shows a nearly 3-fold increase compared to 2013," Chaika said, adding that over 9 months of this year the number of stated claims grew by 50%
"The task to intensify efforts of the law enforcement agencies in this area is very topical. We will discuss that on November 25 during the coordination meeting of the law enforcement bodies," the prosecutor-general added.
