Vasnetsova A.S., Merkur'ev V.V. - Combating corruption-related crimes in the context of counterterrorism efforts pp. 31-39


Abstract: The authors study in details such aspects of the problem as the processes of criminal concrement of organized crime, corruption and terrorism, in which organized crime plays the role of initiating (defining) factor of emergence of corruption interconnections of government institutions and terrorist groups. It means that terrorist activity, possessing a range of common features typical for, among other things, organized crime, is impossible without corruption-related contacts in government institutions and self-government bodies. Therefore, long-term functioning of terrorist groups means the presence of a corruption element. The authors study the common patterns of using corruption-related practices by terrorists and substantiate the list of corruption-determined terrorist threats.The authors formulate the suggestions about the extension of the list of risks connected with the corruption-based financing of terrorism. Corruption in government institutions, local self-government bodies and security agencies is a fueler for the development of terrorism, acting, on the one hand, as a reason for its emergence, and on the other hand, as an indispensable condition of its existence. The recognition of corruption as an independent risk factor of the creation of favorable conditions for the financing of terrorism will help to improve counterterrorism efforts. The authors note that the terrorist threat increases with the level of corruption. Thus, the fight against corruption should remain one of the key directions of national policy, and the effectiveness of these counterterrorism efforts will affect the reduction of terrorist threat level for the state.

The research subject is the crime prevention legislation, administrative responsibility laws, federal and regional program-targeted documents regulating the sphere of domestic violence, and theoretical insights into this topic. The purpose of the research is to analyze regional tendencies of legal regulation of the prevention of assault and torture, as a part of the system of domestic violence prevention in Russia. To achieve this goal and research tasks, the author uses general scientific (analysis, synthesis, deduction, induction) and specific research methods, with the formal-legal method as a basic one, which is connected with the analysis of legal regulations in their system unity. The scientific novelty of the research is proved by the fact that regional peculiarities of legal regulation of the prevention of assault and torture as a part of the system of domestic violence prevention haven’t been studied sufficiently enough. Assault and torture are the factors signalling about the aggravation of home conflicts and leading to the further escalation. In Russia, municipalities create  a system of measures which includes some or all of the following elements: 1) the formation of public awareness about the domestic violence problem; 2) information and methodology support for the activities of law-enforcement agencies and social services responsible for the prevention of domestic violence; 3) the provision of interaction between medical institutions and law-enforcement bodies and social services; 4) the introduction of punishment for home rowdyism and the provocation of home conflicts.

Abstract: Measures of administrative coercion have become widely used in the financial segment of economic relations. The revocation of a banking license of a credit institution is one of the most popular ones. The legal mechanism of this measure of administrative coercion has been in force for three years, but its analysis in the context of application to particular credit institutions reveals a range of fundamental problems connected with the clarification of the character, the role and the place of this measure within the system of administrative coercion. The authors analyze the problem of revocation of a banking license of a credit institution as it is described in the decisions of the Constitutional Court to find the key to the understanding the solution to these problems. The academic novelty of the research consists in the analysis of legal problems of using the measures of administration coercion in the banking system. The authors pay attention to the various functions of measures of administrative coercion in the banking system, and focus on such aspect as the revocation of a banking license of a credit institution. This measure is a form of administrative coercion combining the elements of prevention, constraint, and punishment of a credit institution. The authors note that the revocation of a banking license is one of the most serious measures of administrative coercion, and it is important to observe the constitutional principles of using it.
