Russia ranks low in new Transparency International corruption index
Global anti-corruption advocacy group Transparency International released on Wednesday its raking of the world’s countries and territories based on perceived corruption within the public sector. The ranking is established according to a scale of zero to 100, 100 being perfection in anti-corruption terms, and zero being essentially disastrous corruption-wise. Two-thirds of the 176 countries assessed fell under the 50 mark, Russia included.
