Russia- an improvement for corruption!

A survey from a Russian think-tank finds;

“The principal feature of the practical everyday corruption resides in the fact that the volume of the everyday corruption market (i.e. sum of the bribes to be paid by citizens within one year) has not undergone any specific alterations along with a relevant increase from US$ 2,8 billion to 3,0 billion respectively. Although such a stable position is the result of the two dynamic processes being interacted. The first process may be seen as some corruption risk increase (authorities' corruption pressure onto citizens) and corruption demand decrease (citizens' readiness to bribe). The same trend reveals in some decreased everyday corruption intensity (average number of bribes per one briber annually) under significant growth of the average bribe amount. The second process appears as this average bribe amount within everyday corruption realm can be absorbed totally by national consumer prices' growth.”
