Abstract
The present study is devoted to corruption combating issues in the Russian Federation. This ill of the society is officially recognized as a threat to national security. Evaluating of the applied set of measures against corruption speaks for its inefficiency. The venal practices situation in Russia does not alter fundamentally. One of the reasons for the failure of corruption-related criminal practice combating is the faulty statistical accounting system. In particular, it recognizes as corruption related crimes the conducts which are not actually such. High annual crime detection figures provide deceptive impression of the success of corruption combating by police officers. In the follow-up of the study, we conclude about necessity to reduce the list of corruption offences, which must contain only crimes like abuse of power, bribery, and other crimes against lawfulness in the spheres of public authority and service.
