    MOSCOW, January 12, 2003. /RIA Novosti/. Corruption demoralizes society, degrades the authorities and the state apparatus, Vladimir Putin said.

    "Corruption is especially unbearable in the judicial and law enforcement bodies because the fight against this evil is their direct function," Vladimir Putin stressed at the first meeting of the anti-corruption council under the Russian President.

    Putin is convinced that this phenomenon will be reduced as the rule of law, democratic institutes and civilized market are consolidated in the country and the authorities will fight not only against the consequences of corruption but also against its causes.
