Rubric: CORRUPTION: LEGAL LABYRINTHS IN HEAVENLY HELL

Annotation: The article analyzes direct and indirect measures for combating corruption. The author makes a research on developed countries’ experience in fi ghting against the corruption. The author takes an example of Australia, country with almost zero corruption Index. The article also focuses on comparative study of the Russian Federation with the Papua New Guinea (recently visited by the author), as two developing countries with almost the same corruption level which is very high. In terms of the history of the corruption in the Russian Federation the author studies a tradition of Byzantium: the system of ‘feedings’. The attitude of the Russian population to bribery hasn’t been changed for ages. The article points out that historical roots and commonness of corruption nowadays make the corruption fight inthe modern conditions even more diffi cult. It has received some legislative ground recently. In summer 2013 the amendment was made that set a new definition: ‘non-procedural appeal to judges’. This provision is of real importance for the corruption fi ght, as the most signifi cant step in fighting against corruption is to prevent state bodies of power from interfering into the administration of justice. The amendments show that any access to the court in an illegitimate way and shall be disclosed to the public and punished. Concluding remarks of the article give suggestions on the steps to be undertaken in the Russian Federation to combat corruption.
