“In the near future I’m going to do it – toughen the laws that deal with corruption … You know well that we have a decree on the use of the death penalty as the supreme measure of justice. And, I think, corruption will fall under this definition. Depending on the harm caused to society, corruption will be punished by the laws of wartime deprivation of life. I have already held a number of negotiations with the People’s Council, I have received full understanding. Only in a few nuances, the wording of the law, was disagreed with, but this is a technical issue, we must solve them,” Zakharchenko said.

“Without a doubt, corruption is a disease of any society. There is no specific drug for this disease. Approaches to eradicate all of its, in the DPR are very rigid. At a certain point, I decided – regardless of rank and merit before the Fatherland, corruption must be ended, “- said Zakharchenko.
