Russian Press Review: MEDVEDEV PROPOSES TO CONFISCATE SUSPICIOUS PROPERTY FROM PUBLIC SERVANTS

ИТАР-ТАСС

The chairman of the board of directors of the Presidential Institute of Modern Development, Igor Yurgens, valued highly the presidential efforts in this issue, the Nezavisimaya Gazeta cited him as saying. “As a specialist in the America by education I can say that it is the America that copes with this evil. The neighbours of a public servant can call the US taxation services and say that he bought an expensive car and the taxation services will investigate this fact,” he said. The scale of corruption in Russia turned in a structural evil and, therefore, the instruments of struggle against corruption offered by the president are justified, Yurgens added.
