Пределы гражданско-правовых конструкций в уголовном праве
This article is a reply on the article published in the previous issue of this journal and authored by professor Alexander Sergeev. He criticized the criminal legislation and case law in their approaches to some civil law institutions. In reply to his views, the author explains criminal law approaches and tries to justify them following the long chain of cases and theory of criminal law. Three questions are analysed in depth in this article. Firstly, criminal liability of members of board of directors under Russian criminal law and more broadly criminal liability of corporate top managers. Secondly, differentiation between public and private officials especially in light of current trend to enlarge a definition of public official. Lastly, the problem of recovery of a damage in criminal procedures.
