MOSCOW, January 26. /TASS/. Russia’s anticorruption laws and their enforcement practice meet the international standards, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.
"The anticorruption legislation formed in recent years and its enforcement practice meet the international standards," the president said at a meeting of the Anticorruption Council.
According to Putin, Russia has introduced the mechanisms that make it possible to detect corruption schemes at any level and promptly react to them and isolate the corrupt officials, if necessary.
The Russian president said that over the first 9 months of 2015 alone more than 8,800 people were convicted within criminal cases over corruption. Almost 11,000 officials were disciplined for the violation of anti-corruption standards.
"Today it is important to move on," Putin added. "And above all — to solve the problems raised in the [state-of-the-nation] address [of the president] to the Federal Assembly." In particular, the presidential decree that established the mechanisms for the disclosure of information about civil servants’ personal interest, for bringing the violators to responsibility, including their dismissal for loss of confidence.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has demanded that the government should take tougher measures to seize corruption officials’ property in favor of the state.
"We need to improve such an anti-corruption mechanism as seizing the property acquired with illegal or dubious money in favor of the state, including with account taken of international standards," Putin said at a meeting of the Anti-Corruption Council.
Putin also stressed that "efforts should be taken to return the assets illegally or illegitimacy withdrawn into other jurisdictions."
