Russia is 143d in Corruption List

Russia is ranked 143 in the annual Corruptions Perceptions Index by Transparency International. Russia has worsened its index on 18 points in comparison with the last year.
      Russia has got 2.3 score from 10, the lower the score the higher is corruption level in the country.
      Russia shares its position with Gambia, Indonesia and Togo. Among 180 countries the first countries in the list are Denmark and Finland, the last one is Somali.
      According to Ugett Label, the chairman of Transparency International, corruption swallows the financial recourses which are to support education, health service and infrastructure.
      The CPI is today one of the most commonly-used measure for corruption in countries worldwide. Based on many different studies, it is famed for its accuracy. To form this index, TI compiles surveys that ask businessmen and analysts, both in and outside the countries they are analyzing, their perceptions of how corrupt a country is. Relying on the number of actual corruption cases would not work since laws and enforcement of laws differ significantly from country to country.
      The CPI is criticized for two main reasons. The first is a danger of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Country analysts might be influenced by past corruption indices and therefore not realize changes. Secondly, the use of the index values in time-series statistics is problematic due to the way it is calculate.
