The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov ordered to reinforce the struggle with corruption during his meetings with the chiefs of the Republican law-enforcement bodies. At the meetings with the leadership of the Republican Ministry of internal affairs, FSS, the Office of Public Prosecutor and the Committee of Inquiry a wide circle of questions, concerned with the toughening of the responsibility for corruption violations and bribery, was under discussion. Rustem Khamitov ordered these structures to disclose and severely suppress any manifestations of corruption.

Earlier at the inauguration ceremony Rustem Khamitov has stated that if we fail to extirpate corruption and bribery now, the further progress in the country is impossible. The President RB has underscored that the people, abusing their power, will be violated to the fullest extent of the Russian legislation.
