The researchers give a description of crime situation in Russia in 2014 as compared to 2010 in general and by separate corruption-related crimes. The following research methods were used in the course of the study preparation: analysis, comparison, statistics, etc. The research results were discussed during the international conferences and were partially published. The researchers come to a conclusion that the problem of corruption in Russia is not so much of criminological and criminal nature as of sociopolitical nature. Therefore, its revelation and prevention is conditioned by consistent and efficient activity of all governmental and law enforcement authorities as well as by pro-active anticorruption attitude of the citizens and the civil society institutions.
