Russia’s ‘biggest problem‘ is corruption

A candidate standing against Vladimir Putin in Russia’s presidential election says corruption and threats to business from the State is Russian’s biggest problem.

Boris Titov, leader of the Party of Growth told BBC Hardtalk's Stephen Sackur that criminal law was also being “used against companies".

Mr Titov, who is also President Putin’s Business Ombudsman, insisted he had never seen anyone from the president’s administration asking businesses for a bribe and that the country needs to go forward.
