Michael Bryachak: corruption must be equated to treason
Corruption destroys the country, so it must be equated to treason. This is what Mikhail Bryachak, the State Duma Deputy, the Chairman of the Chamber of Deputies, the Chairman of the Regional Council in the Republic of Crimea, stated at a press conference in Alushta before the Congress of Deputies of the Party "Spavedlivaya Rossiya" in Sevastopol.
"Today, corruption manifestations not only hamper economic development, but also destroy the country, - said Mikhail Bryachak . - A spy can't cause the country more harm than the corrupt governor, the minister or the public-service manager. We see the example of the Federal Customs Service. Therefore, penalties for corruption should be the same as for treason. This is not only my personal opinion, it is the opinion of our political force. The property shoud be confiscated not only from the perpetrators, but also from the members of their families, who are usually receive it. Measures against corruption must be the most severe."
With that, the deputy pointed out that while there is a monopoly of power in the country, it's almost impossible to fight corruption.
The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, considered the refusal of Rosneft to build a bitumen plant in Chechnya "strange". Previously, the oil company proposed to build a bitumen plant instead of building an oil refinery in Grozny.
Since November 2016, political experts and media demonstrate keen interest to the Kemerovo region and its leader. High-profile terminations and arrests of regional officials and law enforcement officers, the illness of the Governor, and his disappearance from the public sight have sparked numerous rumors and speculations. According to the most recent prognosis, Tuleev has to testify as a witness in the ‘Inskoy Pit case’ and potentially faces jail.
