And not really what I thought of when I think of Russia.
The most important thing that comes to mind is Putin.
He served in the KGB (we all know what that entailed), two terms as prime minister, and is in his third term as President.
Unless you're completely unaware, Russia has similar laws to the US in regards to political terms and Presidents are only allowed to server two terms. He just got elected for a third term, completely throwing out his own country's laws.
Based on information I've gathered, excluding this bit of information, Russia is one of the most corrupt countries in Europe.
And I'm fairly certain that if you asked anyone in the world which countries they'd rank in the top 3 most corrupt...China, Russia, and the U.S. would all be included.
