This study focuses on the current stage of development of the criminal policy in Russia in the context of penalization and depenalization processes. Penalization and depersonalization processes of an overall character have been analyzed in detail, thanks to which repression must be constantly brought in line with the realities of social reality and adequately reflect the nature and degree of social danger of commit offenses. The authors argue that it is unreasonable for the legislator to lift almost all restrictions on the use of a suspended sentence. The work reveals that the peculiarity of the criminal policy in Russia is that the mitigation of the criminal repression and limitation of criminal influence is achieved to a greater extent through the establishment of various grounds for exemption from the criminal responsibility and punishment in the law and wide application in practice, and to a lesser extent through decriminalization of socially dangerous acts. The study of changes in the current legislation leads the authors to the conclusion that depenalization is chosen as the direction of the criminal policy, which allows minimizing the costs of excessively harsh criminal repression.
