Crimean authorities set the fight against corruption a priority. December 22, Head of Crimea Sergey Aksenov tolt Pervy Krymsky channel that Crimea plans to carry out show trials of high-profile cases involving corruption.
"I will do everything to clarify trials of officials, mayors, and those, who have been detained over the past years," - said Aksenov.
The Head of the Crimea noted that such a measure is necessary for public awareness of the "transparency of the process and the lack of options for staging" and advised officials and executives to "live within their means, and to plan their lives exclusively on wages."
It should be noted that that in 2016 in connection with high-profile corruption scandals there were detained Mayor of Feodosia Dmitry Schepetkov, Chief of the Chernomorsky district Administration Sergey Volodko and Mayor of Kerch Sergey Pisarev.
Corruption is overwhelming in the Republic of Bashkortostan. It infiltrates all branches of power. The recent arrests in the Bashkir Prosecutor’s Office clearly show that justice can be bought and sold there, while the verdict of Themis depends only on the purse size. All powerful officials and businessmen in the republic know how much it costs to institute or dismiss a case. After the replacement of the regional head, the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation has found out that not only the supreme authorities of the Republican Prosecutor’s Office are involved in the corruption scheme – but judges and high-ranked police commanders as well. What officials have sullied their reputation with bribe-taking and are going to fall victims to yet another sweeping purge? What are millions of rubles paid for? What is the true scale of corruption in the region – champion among national republics by that parameter?
