The first part of the article contains a thorough review of the existing literature on possible links between innovative development of national economy and corruption. The second part of the article is a research on such links in Russia. Having analyzed the existing regional data, we have tested several hypothesis, among them: (1) higher economic performance leads to the growth in R&D sector which is followed by the growth of the corruption level; (2) higher corruption level leads to decrease in the region’s economic performance, as well as in number of innovations; (3) More innovative and less corruptive the region is, the better is the economic performance of the region. Our results show, that we can’t prove any strong link between corruption and innovations unless we divide the regions into several groups according to some socio-economic characteristics. But even in this case the link between the studied parameters is not undoubtful.
