The authors analyze the problems that have occurred in the Russian Federation after the ratification of the European Council Convention on Corruption Criminal Liability and the OUN Convention against Corruption. The ratification of the mentioned conventions by the Russian Federation is a very important step in the Russian anti-corruption development. The authors criticize the deceleration of the implementation process in Russia in the past three years. By conducting a comparative-legal analysis of the implementation of the conventions mentioned above, the authors propose possible solutions for the implementation of the conventions texts (adjustment or adaptation) in the already existing Russian criminal legislation system. The authors are of the opinion that the implementation process should be conducted with maximum appreciation of the tradition and principles in the Russian criminal legislation. The purpose of this implementation method would be to maintain the conceptual ideas in the international documents in the Russian legislation, which would be directed towards the effective fight against corruption as well as towards the creation of conditions for cooperation among countries in this sphere.
