Political Corruption in Post-Communist Russia

Political Science Network. PSN. Social Science Research Network, 2017. No. 2897423.
The nomenclature inherited from the USSR, which had transformed in the Russian nomenclature, was the primary source of corruption. The bacillus of electoral corruption infected the organism of Russian politics during the electoral cycle of 1995 – 1996. The process of growth in political corruption had started with the launch of the “successor” operation, which resulted in the Presidency of Putin in 2000. The elections of 2007 – 2008 were a triumph of corruption over free expression of public will. In the course of elections of 2011 – 2012, the acting government managed to retain its juridical legitimacy using political corruption.
