Pure and utter bollox.
Corruption is how Socialism/ Communism functions.
When a degree of Capitalism was introduced to Russia, the corruption continued, because that was the only system that Russians understood.
Please do not compare Russia to Eastern Europe.
There is corruption there too but not on a Russian scale!
Russia is on a level with Africa.
Third world countries.

Why exactly?

One could argue that ten fat Russian oligarchs are better than 10,000 US politicians taking bribes dressed up as speech fees. After they are retired, it's time to who*re - sorry - consult for China and against the US. See: K Street.

You tell me.

I don't know. I never read that cooperatives are more corrupted than sole-proprietorships on average. Or that they are more interested in state corruption. So, how could I tell it?

"Macquarie business academic Dr Nikki Balnave believes that co-ops offer an alternative to for-profit business models which will hold greater appeal to a society disillusioned by growing reports of corporate corruption and greed."

Attention to small and medium business owners. Share of small and medium business in GDP steadily declines throughout the history. For example, in US it shrinked from 48 to 44% of GDP just between 1998 and 2016. The vast majority of small and medium business owners will inevitably go bankrupt within few decades. Many small businesses in US are already heavily subsidized by govt. like agricultural farms or barely meet their ends like many convenience stores, restaurants and services.
