Russian Politician Proposes Anti-Corruption Education

Special classes on “anti-corruption behavior” should be introduced in higher educational establishments for future officials, Irina Yarovaya, head of the State Duma Security and Anticorruption Committee, said on Monday.

      “Our education system, particularly in programs teaching state and municipal management, currently needs classes in anti-corruption behavior,” Yarovaya told RIA Novosti.

      Lawmakers from the Russian parliament’s lower house, the State Duma, are currently preparing a list of amendments to the current anti-corruption legislature, with one of the amendments seeking to oblige state officials to undergo an “anti-corruption test” on a lie detector.

      All these moves are expected to become a part of a much-vaunted anti-corruption campaign launched by Kremlin last fall.

      The Transparency International global watchdog places Russia 133rd out of 174 countries in its Corruption Perceptions Index 2012.
