Subject The article is devoted to urgent problems of building an anti-corruption compliance system in the Russian organizations.
Objectives The study is to determine the role and concept of anti-corruption compliance, enlist the main problems in building such a system in organizations, explore the relationship and ways to solve these problems.
Methods The study clarified the definition of anti-corruption compliance as a method of combating corruption within the framework of the Russian legislation. We classified current issues of anti-corruption compliance in Russia, analyzed their relationship at the individual, organizational and institutional levels, and proposed possible solutions.
Results The study classifies anti-corruption compliance issues in Russia by level of their emergence. We point out some of them originating at the psychological (individual), organizational and institutional levels. Analyzing causes of anti-corruption compliance problems, we note that most of them stem from a non-persuasive tone at the top from corporate executives and governmental officials proclaiming anti-corruption policies. Furthermore, we highlight that vague anti-corruption regulations and the narrow definition of corruption translate into domestic regulatory documents of the Russian organizations, thus triggering the legal nihilism towards anti-corruption laws and, consequently, compliance nihilism towards anti-corruption policies and procedures.
Conclusions and Relevance We conclude that the most current issues of anti-compliance in Russia can be resolved at the institutional level. The national government, law enforcement authorities, representatives of public associations and business should be committed to countering the corruption and amending anti-corruption laws to expand the scope of the term corruption and tightening the punishment for corruption practices.
