Less Corruption in Russia in 2011

Russia is ranked 143 in Corruption Perceptions Index improving its position on 11 levels since the last year.

In 2011 Russia scored 2.4 points according to Corruption Perceptions Index, what let it take 143rd place or just 41st place from the end out of 183 countries included into the index.  

The “cleanest” countries turned out to be New Zealand, Denmark and Finland. North Korea and Somalia are at the bottom of the corruption list.

The Corruption Perceptions Index ranks countries and territories according to their perceived levels of public sector corruption. It is an aggregate indicator that combines different sources of information about corruption, making it possible to compare countries.

These surveys and assessments include questions related to the bribery of public officials, kickbacks in public procurement, embezzlement of public funds, and the effectiveness of public sector anti-corruption efforts, says the Corruption Perceptions Index site.
