Abstract

The article considers problematic issues of legal liability of legal entities in Russia, France, Lithuania and Slovenia for corruption offenses. The article reveals the international legal basis for the criminal liability of the legal entities for corruption crimes and the experience of using this institution in foreign countries. It is noted that in many European countries, the national legislator differently regulates the issues of bringing legal entities to criminal liability for corruption offenses. At the same time, European legislation, in contrast to Russian, provides for a wide range of sanctions for legal entities. In addition, in many foreign countries, criminal liability of legal entities is provided as an effective measure to combat corruption, with different interpretations of sanctions. The carried out comparative legal analysis enables the identification of effective methods and ways of combating corruption in foreign countries, which can be quite successfully implemented by improving Russian legislation in the indicated problems.
