Russians Do Not Believe in Fight Against Corruption

Recent opinion polls show that, though Russia has revved up its anti-corruption drive, Russian people still can't see its results.

      45 percent of respondents said they were aware an anti-corruption campaign was underway, up from the 36 percent who said so when asked the same question in 2007, the pollster VTsIOM reports.

      However, 38 percent said the campaign has not produced any meaningful results with 13 percent saying corruption keeps getting worse.

      The most optimistic people in point of anti-corruption fight are supporters of the ruling party. The poll's results are also good for the Russian media, which is currently considered as a major contributor to the anti-corruption push, with its rating rising to 21 percent from 4 percent.

      The poll was conducted in November 24-25 with 1,600 adults nationwide participating.

      Russia was tied with Nigeria for 143rd place out of 182 nations in Transparency International’s 2011 global corruption index.
