From Echo Moskvy:
Russia comes practically at the very end of a list of rule-of-law ratings
Russia appears practically at the very end of a list of rule-of-law index, according to the international NGO World Justice Project. Of 97 places, our country came 92nd. In terms of the transparency of the judicial process and the authorities, 74th, and in terms of corruption, 71st, reports Interfax. Russia comes next to Iran, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Venezuela, and several African countries.
The highest ratings were in Norway, Sweden, Australia, and a few other Western European countries, the USA and Canada.

…Well, no, not at the very end, but somewhere around ar*e level…
“Of 97 places, our country came 92nd”
Well, all the same, we’re not last. That’s still something to be proud of.

What I don’t understand is WHY we aren’t last?
Ask yourself a question. There are 97 countries, and it’s only Russia that nobody loves, not even 90% of the citizens who live there.
The main thing is that we’re moving…
Funny, why do we have laws, when we’re in very first place for “understandings”.
[Note: "understanding" is a commonly used Russian euphemism for corruption]
No-one’s gonna catch us!!!
Yeah, it’s not nice to feel like a savage, and that you live among savages. But unfortunately, that’s how it is.
Friends are always nearby: [Russia] comes next to Iran, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Venezuela, and several African countries. Korea got lost somewhere.
Who is this World Justice Project?
Who finances them? Why were they created?
First answer these questions, and then put the product of their activity in the headlines…
It’s not the winning it’s the taking part that counts!
And anyway, we’re members of the 8 MOST OVERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD!
But there are about 200 countries in the UN, where are they?
