Shelud'ko V.O., Obraztsov S.V. - The Problems of Prospects for Creation of the Municipal Militsia in Russia pp. 13-19


Abstract: The subject of the research is the attempts to create the municipal militsia in modern Russia.The object of the research is the reform of the internal affairs bodies of the Russian Federation at the present stage in the aspect of their interaction with local authorities in the field of public order protection. The authors consider such aspects of the topic as the background of the issue, conceptual differences between the state militsia and the municipal militsia, regulatory framework for the participation of local governments in the protection of public order, legal conflicts on this issue, accumulated experience of legal regulation on the protection of public order in municipalities, positions of various parties on the problem under study. Special attention is paid to the problems and prospects of creating the municipal militsia in Russia. In the course of the study the authors apply the formal-logical method, comparative-historical method, system analysis of the Russian legislation provisions, and comparative law analysis. The main conclusions of the study are the recognition that at the present stage there are no prospects for the creation of a municipal police in Russia, because the opinions of the parties are diametrically opposed and only a manifestation of the political will of the state can bring them to consensus. Special contribution of the authors to the study of the topic is their invitation to realize that the creation of the municipal militsia should not be an end in itself, the proposal to exclude from the Federal Law "On the general principles of local government organization in the Russian Federation" the rule on municipal police, the proposal to use the domestic pre-revolutionary experience. The novelty of the study is caused by the fact that the authors analyze the provisions of Russian legislation relating to the participation of local authorities in the protection of public order and prospects for the municipal militsia in Russia.
Operative investigation in police work
Erdolatov C.S. - The Way of Exortion Commission as an Element of the Criminalistic Feature of Crime pp. 20-25


Abstract: The article is devoted to the analysis of the methods of extortion including those with the participation of organized criminal groups which are one of the central elements of the forensic characterization of this category of cases. For disclosing the stated topic of the article, the author based on the analysis highlighted three fundamental positions of a number of authors on the notion of the method of committing a crime as a whole, where on the basis of their critical analysis the author’s approach to this is sufficiently debatable, including relatively organized extortion. The results presented in the article are obtained on the basis of the use of such methods of scientific analysis as comparative legal analysis, deduction, induction and synthesis. The author of the article substantiates the fallacy of some positions of individual authors regarding the structure of the method of extortion with the participation of organized criminal groups. The influence of the qualitative characteristics of members of an organized group on the method of extortion is also shown. On the basis of the conducted research, a conclusion was drawn on the peculiarities of the correlation connection between the situation and the way of extortion.

The research methodology consists the dialectic and formal legal methods of scientific knowledge as well as the analysis of legal literature and the study of the practice of investigating criminal cases for the commission of road traffic crimes. Based on an in-depth study of the scientific literature, the authors come to the conclusion that the conceptual foundations of the category “legal education in the investigation of criminal cases of traffic accidents” are insufficiently developed theoretically. Summarizing and analyzing the existing theoretical approaches to the definition of legal education, as well as the content of federal targeted programs aimed at improving road safety, the authors formulate the legal definition of the concept under consideration. In conclusion, it is pointed out the need to develop and introduce modern means of legal education for participants in criminal proceedings in cases of accidents, which will contribute to improving the prevention of road traffic crimes and incidents.
