Grigory Yavlinsky: Stealing is pleasant and prestigious in Russia

Press realease

"Stealing is pleasant and prestigious in Russia at present," said the leader of the YABLOKO party Grigory Yavlinsky at the round-table meeting "St. Petersburg in the 21st Century" at the Rosbalt information agency on November 19, 2002.

Yavlinsky is well aware, however, that "corruption is inevitable, but the Russian government is a fine government, no worse and even better than others." However, the main problem, noted Yavlinsky, is that "this government is not subject to any controls." Yavlinsky added: "We have only the President, who can be 'calmed' with words. But this does not provide a resolution of the problem. We should do this to make stealing frightening and difficult:", added Yavlinsky.
