11 Countries with the Highest Crime Rate per Capita in the World: 2016 Rankings

10. Russia

Score – 21

We are continuing our list of countries with the highest crime rate per capita in the world with Russia that is a rather large country and one that has been known for its violent nature from time to time. Across its territories, there are plenty of criminal activities taking place. The UN notes that the country has it worst when it comes to burglary, homicide, robbery, theft, theft of private cars and sexual offenses against children. Even if the country does rank on all these lists, they’re among the last ones on the chart.

The US Bureau of Diplomatic Security has marked Russia with a “high” crime rating level, although the assessment is mostly focused on St. Petersburg. They advise visitors to be careful when out and about since violence against foreigners does happen.
