Russian Corruption Saga YouTube Sensation

Friday, 20 November 2009 09:03 AM

MOSCOW -- The month of November has been a poignant one for Russia and its fight against corruption -- arguably its biggest vice.

It began on November 5, with a series of sensational whistle-blowing video postings on the Internet from police Maj. Alexey Dymovsky, who served in Russia's southern city of Novorossiysk.

In the postings, addressed to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, the now-fired officer accused his superiors of forcing him to make false arrests and fabricate statistics in order to make their police department look better.

"My immediate boss promoted me to the rank of major in May in exchange for my promise to jail an innocent person. ... I am addressing you to ask you to carry out an independent investigation across Russia," Dymovsky said.

"I will turn the entire life of cops throughout Russia inside out, with corruption and all the rest -- ignorance, boorishness, recklessness -- when honest, really honest officers die because they have dumb bosses."
