Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Igor Krasnov congratulated the winners of the International Youth Social Anti-Corruption Advertising Competition “Together against Corruption!”

“For many years, Russia has openly demonstrated to the entire world community its commitment to the basic anti-corruption standards enshrined in international law. Moreover, we participate in the formation of such standards and law enforcement practices, and actively disseminate our own successful experience in combating corruption on international platforms. But this work cannot be called sufficient without involving representatives of civil society. The most effective fight against corruption requires the participation of concerned citizens, including the youth.

An important step in this direction was the establishment by the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation of the International Youth Social Anti-Corruption Advertising Competition “Together against Corruption!”, which has acquired a global scale since last year and is held for young people from all over the world.

The main purpose of this event is to attract broad public attention to the issues of corruption prevention, and to disseminate education in the younger generation of an intolerant attitude to any corruption manifestations.

By tradition, we are summing up the results of the competition on December 9, the International Anti-Corruption Day.

There were a lot of interesting and talented works, but the prize-winners and finalists of the competition were determined based on the online voting results.

Congratulations to the finalists on a well-deserved victory!”
