Ответственность командиров в российском уголовном праве с точки зрения de lege lata

Lex Russica (Русский закон). 2017. № 11. С. 93-99.

The article is concerned with the current status in Russian criminal legislation of a specific concept of international humanitarian law – command responsibility. The author traces the implementation of such norms in pre-1917 and Soviet legislation, and then turns to the current Criminal Code of 1996. He concludes that there is no overall scheme for such liability in the Russian Criminal Code because neither the general part of it with regard to complicity no the special part in its specific crimes provide the criminal responsibility of commanders. As a consequence there are difficult criminal cases where the penal responsibility of the accused might be properly established only on the basis of command responsibility.
