The next, fifth in a row, national anti-corruption plan for 2018 - 2020 was signed at the end of June this year. Unlike previous editions, this one provides an assessment of the effectiveness of measures taken and measures of responsibility.
For how long is the approved nat. Putin's plan
For the first time, anti-corruption was discussed ten years ago. Then a plan was developed, the basis of which consisted of measures aimed at combating bribes. About how long a modern document was adopted (signed in June this year), the authors respond - for a similar two-year period.
About what activities were carried out and what results were achieved during this period can be found in the public domain on the official websites. According to the current legislation, government departments and municipalities are obliged to publish reports on the implementation of the national plan on their online pages. Further, on the basis of these documents, an approved summary analysis is prepared, which is sent to officials and submitted to the head of state.

|Year||Number of crimes|
As in previous years, adopted by nat. the plan does not require full disclosure of the picture, the implementation of the tasks and their effectiveness. Because of this, the summary reports provide averaged data for the region, but do not reflect the actual situation. The lack of a system of assessments and control has led to the fact that the action plans of various departments are often very similar to each other, although the corruption risks of the Ministry of Culture and, for example, the Ministry of Defense, are completely different.
Important! According to the Levada Center poll, the most corrupt industries in the country are the traffic police, housing and communal services, medicine, and the state. management and courts.
According to the decree signed by Vladimir Putin, by October 1, the government should develop mechanisms for evaluating the effectiveness of meeting the requirements of the plan. The ministers also had to resolve the issue of responsibility for the development and implementation of anti-bribery policies. By November 1, draft laws should be submitted, which will spell out a list of requirements, prohibitions and restrictions for officials, as well as measures of responsibility for these violations.
