Andrey Burtsev, Ivan Mironuk, Eugenie Ignatenko, Victor Omelin, Vasily Potapov

Abstract


Abstract.In this article, various approaches to the consolidation of notion of “corruption offence” are considered with the help of a comparative legal analysis of the content of criminal legislation of Russia and CIS member states. Researchers found that in order to achieve this goal, national legislators use the two following methods: 1) to fix the definition of “corruption offence” in criminal law; 2) to establish a closed list of such unlawful acts. By taking into account the importance of the concept under consideration in the fight against corruption, a conclusion was
made about the prospect of its fixing in the criminal laws of all CIS member states.
Keywords: criminal legislation, corruption, corruption offence, criminal law, law.
