All Russian Civil Servants to Report Their Expenses

Russian government has proposed a new anti-corruption bill, which will oblige all state officials and members of parliament to declare the purchase of houses, company shares and cars.

      The law was designed to to curb widespread corruption in the state administration.

      Officials and lawmakers will have to provide information about the purchase of real estate, cars and company assets. Under the bill, if civil servants' expenses are much higher than their income, they may be dismissed, stripped of their property or face criminal charges. However, for such sanctions to be applied, law enforcers will have to prove that the incomes in question were acquired illegally.

      Both the draft law and the plan will be posted on the Big Government website and open for a nationwide discussion till March 22.
