The article is devoted to identifying areas for improving criminal punishment in cooperation with the Institute of Reconciliation in Russian criminal law. The author stresses that the problem of punishment is “eternal” for Russian and Western criminal law doctrine, although there is some difference in research directions between them. The article concludes that in the Russian criminal law science, the approach of not the punitive definition of punishment, its features and purposes is recognized as dominant since the purpose of punishment has become obsolete by now. Reconciliation is directly enshrined in the general conditions of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, and above all in punishment as a manifestation of restorative justice, where the state provides the perpetrator of the crime with the possibility of a full or limited agreement on a compromise with the state.
