The Ministry of Defence has identified the primary causes of corruption within its ranks.
The causes of corruption violations are attributed to legal nihilism, self-interested motives of unethical unit leaders, and weak oversight from commanding authorities. Deputy Minister of Defence, Lieutenant General Sultan Kamaletdinov, addressed these concerns during a session of the Defence Ministry's commission against corruption, as reported by Sarbaz.kz.
"Countering corruption is a priority for every official and commander responsible for fostering an environment of intolerance towards corruption within military units," – Sultan Kamaletdinov emphasised.
The Anti-Corruption Commission of the Ministry of Defence has formulated over 70 recommendations to mitigate corruption risks. These recommendations span areas such as conscription into military service, state procurement, construction, and other aspects of military administration. Particular attention will be given to issues concerning deferments for conscript-age individuals and the direction of military training for draftees.
