Abstract

This scientific article reflects the results of a study on topical and important issues concerning confiscation of property as an effective and successful anti-corruption tool in the Russian Federation these days. To achieve the objectives of the study the author carefully analyzed legislative changes directly related to the use of the property confiscation mechanism that have occurred in Russia recently. As a result of a study of the legal specifics of this criminal law institution and the existing law enforcement practice in modern Russia, it was concluded that confiscation of property as a separate criminal punishment could become an adequate and fair response from the state to corrupt behavior of officials at any level. The findings of the study also include the conclusion that in modern socio-economic conditions, confiscation of property has a number of advantages compared to types of criminal punishment and other measures of a criminal law nature in terms of preventing corruption. The significance of the study lies in the convincing evidence that the preventive effect of the institution of confiscation of property is primarily expressed in the well-founded fears and fears of potential criminals to lose their valuable property as a result of its nationalization, which deter and protect them from committing criminal acts of corruption. The results of this scientific study can be successfully applied both in the further study of the problem of combating corruption in modern Russia, as well as in the legislative process and in the practical sphere.
