Today, 14-го August, in SBU management in the Nikolaev area the round table which main task there was a search of ways of overcoming of corruption in our state and the region in particular took place. Heads of different departments of security service, prosecutors, militias, justice departments, tax administration, and also representatives of public organizations and mass media took part in action.
During discussion participants of a round table decided on some factors which influence corruption development in various spheres or disturb identification of corruption actions.
The first - insufficient cooperation of law enforcement agencies with the public, and vice versa - insufficient cooperation of the population with law enforcement agencies. Often person, even knowing about any corruption actions (and at times even falling their victim), doesn't hurry to report about lawlessness in law enforcement agencies, being afraid that him will condemn for a squealing. However to participants of a round table remained nothing how to attribute it to features of our Post-Soviet mentality.
The second - low efficiency of preventive actions from law enforcement agencies. From here - low legal culture of the population. After all often average inhabitant, bribing someone, at all doesn't realize that this act he commits a penal crime.
The third - lack of effective system of response to statements. Having received from the citizen the statement with the description of the fact of corruption, employees of law enforcement agencies should pass heavy bureaucratic machinery adequately to investigate this fact and to obtain the necessary evidence. The head of department of personnel work and public service of head department of justice in the Nikolaev area Roman Voznyak told about it.
The fourth - possibility of officials who have no right to be engaged in business, "to copy" the business on the close relatives. As an example the acting head of department of SBU in the Nikolaev area Vladimir Kulinin remembered recent scandal with the vice-chairman of the Constitutional court of Ukraine Syuzanna Stanik who has "million dachas, million apartments, million houses, but not at it, and at relatives. They have the right".
The fifth - a difficult authorization system. It gives a fertile field for corruption development at different levels of structures of the power. For example, to receive the land plot, the person should pester over ten instances that takes away the mass of forces and time. For acceleration of this process and procedure simplification it is easier for it for someone to pay and not to suffer.
The sixth - a justification society of some corruption actions. It is easier for person to reconcile to that he should bribe (a pier, with it there's nothing to be done, all so live), than to report in law enforcement agencies that compel to break it laws.
- Our legislation is so written that in everything the militiaman and the person who is compelled to bribe isn't right, - Vladimir Kulinin speaks. - In our today's conditions to document a bribe is a titanic work. "To receive" a vzyatkovzyatel - the whole operation.
About it the deputy head of department on fight against economic crime Sergey Stuzhuk expressed opinion that it would be necessary to clean from the Criminal Code of Art. 370 (provocation on a bribe). He told that article is used often by corrupt officials as the counteraction lever (that is, being caught on a bribe, they start casting blame on those who gave this bribe to them - a pier, I am not guilty, me provoked). On his belief, employees of law enforcement agencies, on the contrary, have to go and provoke because only thus it is possible to define bribe takers and to fix the bribery facts.
According to Vladimir Kulinin, the state yet didn't create such conditions for bribe takers and corrupt officials that the earth under them burned.
