The document notes that the number of crimes related to bribery in Kursk Oblast has grown from 89 to 257, that is 189 percent, in the first six months of 2016, as compared to the same period of 2015. The second place by corruption is occupied by the Udmurt Republic where the indicator increased by 113 percent. The third position is taken by Astrakhan Oblast (a 105-percent increase). At the same time, the list of regions where the number of such crimes decreases is headed by the Kamchatka Territory with an 80-percent decrease.

The second and third places in the ranking are occupied by Arkhangelsk Oblast and Smolensk Oblast (minus 62 and 50 percent, respectively). The Prosecutor General’s Office notes that an overall increase in the number of corruption crimes by 2 percent has been recorded in the country for the first half of the year. More than 21 thousand of them have been committed in 2016.
