Kremlin Chief of Staff Sergey Ivanov has said that standards of fighting against corruption should not be forced upon other countries.
“Forcing standards upon other countries is impermissible as they are not ready for them,” Ivanov told the 6th session of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption. “We have already realized that the experience of other countries in forming these or those norms of behavior often turns out to be unsuitable, and sometimes even harmful,” Ivanov added.
“In this connection, we think that peculiarities of each concrete country should be taken into account when implementing international anti-corruption standards,” he continued.
