Activist: Corruption in Russia and the Crimea poses a threat to Russia's national security

The Deputy Director of the Crimean Anti-Corruption Front movement and Head of the Foundation of the Self-Organization of the Crimean population, Alexander Zabara, notes that the level of corruption in the Crimea is causing serious concerns and poses a threat to the national security of the Russian Federation.

“The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, said that it is necessary to fight corruption and all its forms without fear. These issues should be actively addressed in the Crimea. People steal, have stolen, and continue to steal. The great city of Rome was once destroyed by corrupt officials. What are we supposed to do? Should we watch corrupt officials steal the resources of the Crimea? We will lose the country this way,” Alexander Zabara, known as the veteran of the Russian movement, commented on the situation.

On the 10th of September, the Crimean Anti-Corruption Front, Taygan, was created in the Crimea. Oleg Zubkov was appointed as the Head of the public movement and the pro-Russian activist of the Crimea, Aleksandr Zabara as his Deputy. The Crimean public activist and blogger, Galina Lomakina, was appointed as the Secretary of the movement.

The Kremlin-controlled Public Councils of the Crimea have submitted proposals for programs to prevent corruption. The results of this competitive bid process will be announced on International Anti-Corruption Day in the annexed Crimea on the 1st of December, as instructed by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov.
