Russian Report on Individual Liability for Business Involvement in International Crimes

Revue Internationale de Droit Penal. 2017. Vol. 88. No. 1. P. 327-342.
Esakov G., Filatova M.

This article is a review of Russian criminal law on complicity in light of the corporate reality. The types of complicity and the objective and subjective elements of complicity are analysed. Based on this, the debatable issues of complicity are expounded. Then, Russia’s minimalistic approach to international crimes in criminal legislation is analysed with reference to recent case law and its problems. Lastly, corporate involvement in criminality is reviewed with reference to issues of corporate criminal liability and liability of corporate officials. Particular attention is given to general principles of imputation of a criminal deed which took place in a corporate activity to a natural person, the liability of shadow officials and liability for omission. This article concludes with some predictions about the problems that Russian criminal legislation is set to encounter.
