MOSCOW, April 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has endorsed a national anti-corruption plan for the period from 2014 to 2015. The document was posted on the official internet portal of legal information.
The president ordered executive and legislative authorities by July 1, 2014 to make relevant amendments to their anti-corruption plans and to ensure control over their execution.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday instructed the Prosecutor General’s Office to check in 2014 a number of state organizations for their propensity for corruption.
A relevant order has been included in the National Plan to Counter Corruption for 2014-2015.
Inspections will be held in the Pension Fund, the Social Insurance Fund, the Federal Fund of Compulsory Medical Insurance, Russian state corporation Vnesheconombank, the Rosatom and Rostec state corporations, the Deposit Insurance Agency, the Support Fund for the Reform of the Housing and Utilities Sector, the Russian Highways state company and other organizations.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office is to submit to the president “a report on revealed violations, measures taken to correct them and proposals to improve work to counter corruption in the above-mentioned organizations” by December 1, 2014, the document says.
In particular, in order to prevent corruption-related crimes and fight such crimes in the utilities and professional education systems, the Construction, Housing and Utilities Ministry, the Interior Ministry and the Investigative Committee were ordered to explain the responsibility for corruption-related crimes to utilities workers.
The Education Ministry, jointly with the Interior Ministry and the Investigative Committee, was instructed to explain to employees and students of higher educational and vocational education establishments how bribery and mediation in bribery are punished in line with the law. A report on the results should be submitted by December 1, 2014.
By March 1, 2015, a report on implementation of another order should be submitted to Putin. The Prosecutor General’s Office is to check whether anticorruption laws are enforced in the housing and utilities and education systems.
