Medvedev: Oversight bodies are corrupted
The Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated at a meeting of the Presidium of the Strategic Development Council and the priority projects that the supervisory activity is not effective enough and often corrupted in Russia.
"It is obvious that the control and supervisory activities in the form in which it now exists causes a lot of complaints. It is believed that there are many shortcomings”.
“Obviously, it is not effective enough for companies and for people, who are faced with it, it is often corrupted and aggressive in relation to the business and, perhaps, altogether it is too cumbersome for the state," - TASS quoted the Prime Minister.
Medvedev believed that the supervisory activities pass into the tool of pressure on the various social spheres, including business, not the mean to maintain the rule of law. He noted that there are 40 supervisory authorities at the federal level in Russia, throughout the country there are 10 thousand control bodies and 100 thousand inspectors work.
The Prime Minister stressed that inspections’ results do not always lead to an improvement of working conditions and elimination of existing risks.
Dmitry Medvedev also noted that many are accustomed to such situation and do not want reforms. However, the current situation, in his opinion, should be changed.
