Corruption in state agencies constitutes a major social threat, since it both directly and indirectly affects social values, morality and national foundations. The level of corruption in a society or a country is the key factor for making a judgment of its civil society development, as well as for estimating its political, economic and social risks. Today, in the age of globalization, corruption is of particularly great concern. This phenomenon is perceived by the authorities of many countries as a deep problem for national security. Moreover, corruption is considered both internal and external threat. Many countries being aware of danger posed by corruption execute consistent works to reduce its rate through introducing and exercising appropriate legislation, which always has prominent national characteristics. On the basis of the legislation adopted in Russia, an integrate and sound system of organizing the activities of civil servants was built, which is able to reduce the corruption rate in the country. However, all measures implemented have not taken any sufficient effect yet. When it is not being constantly tackled, corruption tends to expand and develop, so anti-corruption activities are among the basic functions of any state.
