Development Problems of Investment Legislation in the Russian Federation at the Present Stage  Pdf 16

O. V. Gutnikov

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

The current investment legislation of the Russian Federation is unsystematic and controversial. This is due to the complex nature of the relevant legal norms, which are within both public law and private law.
The article aims to examine the specific current development issues of Russian investment legislation and to identify possible ways to solve them. It also defines the composition, subject and method of investment regulation.
The research is based on general research methods (analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction, system analysis) and methods of legal science (methods of literal, systematic, teleological and historical interpretation of legal norms).
The subject, method and composition of investment legislation relating to different branches of public and private law are disclosed. The main development issues of the investment legislation system are considered and directions for the latter's further improvement are proposed. There is a critical analysis of the main draft laws in the investment sphere, such as “On the Protection and Promotion of Investments and the Development of Investment Activities in the Russian Federation”, “On Preferential Business Regimes in the Russian Federation”. The paper concludes that there is an unjustified mix of private and public law principles in the investment regulation within existing laws, where public law principles excessively prevail. It is proposed to regulate separately investment relations with state participation by special normative acts of both general and special nature (for example, a unified law on agreements concluded with the participation of public law entities in the investment sphere). Private legal investment relations should remain in the field of civil law regulation with the possible expansion of investment instruments which private investors can use for investment.

Economic Policy Nationalization of Russian Constituent Entities (Constitutional Aspect)  Pdf 16

V. D. Mazaev

National Research University “Higher School of Economics”, Moscow 101000, Russian Federation

The article raises an issue of improving legal conditions for economy within Russian constituent entities. One of the factors of favorable investment climate is the legal certainty of market institutions. In Russia, the nationalization institution is a tool to solve economic problems afflicting public authorities and as a guarantee for protection of private property rights. But its legal content and mechanism of implementation are not defined by law. Nationalization is a necessary instrument to solve important tasks for economic development of Russian constituent entities. It ensures the withdrawal of property from inefficient owners to the state to create promising investment projects, new opportunities for a regional market economy. There is a number of examples of a need to nationalize (withdrawal of property from private persons into state ownership) large industrial complexes. An example of regional nationalization in the new constituent entities of the Russian Federation (the Republic of Crimea, Sevastopol) is singled out. While recognizing the political and economic necessity to use this institution for the transitional period, the ambiguous assessment of the constitutional and legal certainty of regional authorities on this issue is also recognized. It is proposed that the Federal legislator solves this problem through the adoption of the Federal law on nationalization, which defines the concept, content and main parameters of the nationalization mechanism. At the same time, it is necessary to resolve the issue of empowering the constituent entity of the Federation to regulate certain issues of the nationalization procedure and the definition of nationalized objects for solving the problems of regional economic policy.

Noncommercial Organizations and Investment Attractiveness of Russia: Legal Regulation  Pdf 16

E. A. Abrosimova

Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow119991, Russian Federation

The article considers the issue of unequal legislative regulation of the participation of noncommercial organizations in the implementation of investment policy in the Russian Federation in comparison with other investment activity actors. The author formulates proposals for improving the current legislation on Russian noncommercial organizations that attract foreign funding to the Russian economy based on an analysis of the provisions of the Federal laws “On Noncommercial Organizations” and “On Foreign Investments in the Russian Federation”. In the light of the development of investment legislation, the design of term “noncommercial organization acting as a foreign agent” is critically evaluated from the constitutional principle of equality of subjects of law perspective.
The methodological basis of the study includes general scientific and special methods of cognition, system-structural, formal-legal, formal-logical methods, as well as the method of interpretation of law.
Conclusions are: in the investment sphere, noncommercial organizations with foreign financing sources are affected in their rights in comparison with other participants in investment relations; the restrictive legal regime established for noncommercial organizations attracting funds from abroad requires a significant adjustment for the establishment of exclusively necessary minimum restrictions; additional guarantees are required regarding judicial protection of the rights of Russian noncommercial organizations involved in investment activities.

The Right to Education and Its Realization by Indigenous Peoples of the Russian Federation  Pdf 16

L. N. Vasilieva

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

The year 2019 has been declared by the United Nations as the Year of the Native Languages of the Indigenous People. In the Russian Federation, indigenous languages are developed and protected in accordance with its international obligations. The article analyzes the legislation of the Russian Federation and its main trends in the realization of the indigenous peoples' right to education. Education in the national language is focused on: education in the native language, which belongs the languages of the peoples of the Russian Federation; the study of the state language of a constituent republic (native to a certain ethnic group); the study of the native language, which belongs to the languages of the peoples of the Russian Federation; the availability of additional guarantees for the study of Russian as a native language. The article reveals issues in this connection and suggests directions for overcoming them.
The author examines the rights of indigenous peoples guaranteed by the Constitution of the Russian Federation in accordance with the generally recognized principles and norms of international law and international treaties of the Russian Federation. The article investigates two main ideas: the first one is to create stimulating conditions for the development of indigenous languages and the implementation of opportunities for indigenous peoples to get education in their native languages. The second idea is to classify indigenous peoples into special categories that receive additional state support for their education. The author also refers to measures aimed at improving the legal status of the language of indigenous peoples, including special provisions on the right to education in such a language.

Public-Legal and Private-Legal Principles of Election Campaigning Regulation  Pdf 16

N. Yu. Tourishcheva

Kuban State University, Krasnodar 350040, Russian Federation

The article is devoted to the regulation of pre-election campaigning as the main legal means to achieve the goal of candidates for election. The diversity of pre-election campaign, designed not only to ensure transparency of the electoral process, but also to respect the equal rights of its members, is the reason that the mechanism of elections — the institution of propaganda — is the clearest demonstration of interaction between public and private law elements inherent in specific methods of regulation. The author analyzes the changes in Federal legislation related to the prohibition to use images and the restriction to use statements of individuals. The tightening of legal provisions in details does not allow giving an unambiguous assessment of the changed regulatory requirements. The presence of such categories as "indefinite circle of persons" and "the main object of use", which do not have clear definitions in law and have a pronounced evaluative character, leaves open questions of interpretation of the relevant rules.
The paper investigates the law enforcement practice of election commissions and court bodies to evaluate campaign materials. Requirements for acceptable options for the use of images of candidates are applicable to all forms of campaigning: not only for printed, but also to audiovisual materials containing images of candidates, including those posted in the media and on the Internet, as well as to other materials of large formats (banners, city boards, etc.). In order to protect the electoral system from a possible destructive impact, the state establishes measures in the form of strict regulation of private legal elements of pre-election campaigning, which levels the essential basis of elections as a conflict between candidates (electoral associations), which origins are laid in the very nature of the competitive electoral process. This objectively increases the importance of public regulation in the system of legal relations connected to the implementation of subjective electoral rights.

There are many jurisdictions in the world that have legalized crypto assets (Bitcoin, Litecoin, etc.) or do not prohibit their use on their territory. Such technologies in many aspects and in the presence of the necessary infrastructure can accelerate the country's economy, simplify civil turnover.
The Republic of Belarus joined the countries that legalized the use of crypto assets on their territory in 2017. However, in the Russian Federation, cryptocurrencies are not monetary instruments, not recognized as money or its equivalent. The lack of proper regulation of the cryptosphere in the Russian Federation, while there is such a regulation in the Republic of Belarus, as well as the lack of unity of law enforcement agencies on the nature of new financial entities, rise up practical problems and hinder the protection of interests protected by domestic criminal law. The analysis of the legislation of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus in connection with new financial technologies and entities presented in the article reveals the threat of a new method of illegal withdrawal of capital and aims to offer ways out of the current situation. Due to the fact that the movement of assets is somehow connected with the legislation of other countries, the article also shortly covers the issues of current regulation of the analyzed aspects in foreign jurisdictions.
The article uses systemic and comparative legal methods. Synthesis of generalizing characteristics in solving the problems of the cryptosphere regulation allows predicting and using such data for the purposes of improving domestic legislation.

Instruments of Recognition of a Criminalized Act as a Criminal Offence (on the Example of Crimes Against the Person)  Pdf 16

I. Yu. Yanina

Moscow State Regional University, Moscow 105005, Russian Federation

In light of the introduction to the State Duma of the Russian Federation of the bill No. 612292-7 “On amendments to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and the Criminal Procedure Code of the Russian Federation in connection with the introduction of the concept of criminal misconduct” the article reveals the actual problem of admissibility (inadmissibility) of the recognition of crimes against the person, which are not punishable by imprisonment, a criminal offense.
The aim of the study is to identify the criteria that allow classifying the act prohibited by the criminal law as a criminal offense. To achieve this goal, the following tasks are set: to show the importance of the theory of criminal law infliction as a means of proving crime acts in the context of criminal misconduct; to prove the presence of socially significant harm and socially significant changes in the object of criminal law protection by establishing the nature and degree of social danger of crimes against the life, health, interests of minors; to justify the absence of public danger of crimes with administrative prejudice, located in Chapter VII of the Russian Criminal Code; to show the features of the negative impact in the object of criminal law protection of crimes against honor, dignity of the individual, constitutional human and civil rights.
The research is based on formal-legal, linguistic, logical, comparative legal research methods that allow to consider the problem in a complex way.
On the basis of the theory of criminal-legal infliction the author provide theoretical and practical recommendations on the need to preserve in the criminal law socially dangerous acts against the life, health, interests of minors as crimes of minor gravity; the implementation of decriminalization of crimes with administrative prejudice, provided for in articles 1161 and 1511 of the Russian Criminal Code; expediency of recognition as a criminal offense of crimes against the person, the direct object of which is the honor, dignity of the person, constitutional rights of man and citizen.

Recognition and Enforcement of Insolvency-Related Judgments in the Light of the UNCITRAL Model Law 2018  Pdf 16

I. O. Khlestova, A. I. Shchukin

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

One of the guarantees that ensure free international trade, the movement of labor, services, capital, is the Institute of recognition and enforcement of judicial decisions of foreign states. In modern economic conditions, the problem of the validity of court decisions abroad in relation to cross-border insolvency, which is based on the concept of primary and secondary bankruptcy proceedings, is becoming increasingly urgent. Issues of recognition and enforcement of decisions in bankruptcy cases due to the specifics of these cases are excluded from the scope of regulation of most universal international treaties relating to cross-border circulation of judicial acts. The practice of applying the national legislation of a number of states (in particular the United Kingdom), based on the UNCITRAL model law on cross-border insolvency (1997), assumes that judicial assistance in bankruptcy cases involves the recognition only of foreign bankruptcy proceedings, and not decisions taken in connection with such proceedings (for example, decisions on avoidance of the debtor's transactions). In those countries (USA) where there is a special regulation of recognition and enforcement of such foreign decisions, it does not cover all judicial acts that can be broadly considered to be related to bankruptcy proceedings. The need in practice to establish a fair and effective mechanism for cooperation between courts of different states and to assist in the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments issued in connection with bankruptcy proceedings led to the development in 2018 of the UNCITRAL Model law on this issue.
In Russia, recognition and enforcement of foreign decisions related to bankruptcy proceedings is carried out according to the general rules provided for in the civil (arbitration) procedural legislation. Taking into account current global trends in the regulation of these issues would be useful for further improvement of Russian legislation, which at the moment does not take into account all the specifics of cross-border insolvency relations. The flexibility inherent in the norms of model acts developed by international organizations and recommended for inclusion in national legislation, as compared to international conventions, allows the state to modify or delete certain provisions of the uniform text.

Application of the Analogy of the Law in Cases Arising from Administrative and Other Public Relations  Pdf 16

A. V. Toporov, B. R. Burganov

Arbitration Court of the Volga District, Kazan 420066, Russian Federation

The relevance of the chosen topic is connected with the need to solve the problems arising in arbitration proceedings as a result of the application of the analogy of the law to overcome the gaps encountered in law enforcement. The review of the results of scientific research and legal practice shows us that the application of the analogy of the law in court cases needs targeted study and legal justification, in particular in cases arising from administrative and other public relations.
The article pays attention to the solution of issues in the sphere of using of the analogy of the law in arbitration proceedings, which can significantly affect the adoption of fair judgments. Also, it can solve such problems as the role of the study of analogy of the law in modern conditions, the allocation of historical legal aspects of development of institute of analogy of law, analysis of judicial practice related to the use of the analogy of law in making judicial decisions associated with administrative and other legal relations.
In present article the author used such methods as generalization and comparison, a systematic approach, the allocation of general and particular features of the object of study, a review of examples from legal practice.
The study specified the need to explore the analogy of law in legal relations, the historical and legal stages of the development of analogy of law, defined duties of the court to use several additional steps in the application of analogy of law. Based on the analysis of the court practice in arbitration proceedings the author found some features of application of analogy of law in cases arising from administrative and other public legal relations. Attention is drawn to the ambiguous interpretation of the concept of "similar provisions" by law enforcers in various legal situations. In the final part the author provides some conclusions, in particular, that the use of analogy of law requires a higher level of legal responsibility and legal outlook of the country's judiciary.

Legal Regulation of the Preferential Tax Regimes  Pdf 16

K. V. Andrievskii

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

Analysis of the content of preferential tax regimes suggests the presence of special features that characterize a certain category of persons or territories. In this case, it is necessary to analyze the problem of the content of regime regulation of tax exemptions, to find out the relationship and mediation of the tax obligation and the tax benefit.
The purpose of the study is to analyze the preferences of certain categories of taxpayers both on the duty to pay tax and on the duty of tax accounting and tax reporting. The objectives of the study are to assess the content of the tax benefit, its focus on the establishment of preferential regimes for taxpayers, excluding the possibility of providing individual benefits to individual taxpayers. Describing preferential tax regimes, it is important to consider them depending on the powers of the participants of tax relations, through the implementation of which there is a duty to pay tax. It is important to take into account a certain overlap of competencies. If we are talking about granting exemptions for Federal taxes and duties, in this case, the emergence of a preferential tax regime is associated exclusively with the powers of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation. At the same time, as for special preferential tax regimes at the level of regional or local taxes, the ratio of competences in this case is absolutely logical.
The analysis of the problem and the solution of the research tasks are based on the use of a set of general and special methods of scientific knowledge.
Preferential tax regimes presuppose the existence of special features that characterize a certain category of persons or territories. Assessing the content of the tax benefit, it is important to keep in mind its focus on a certain category of taxpayers, excluding the possibility of providing individual benefits to individual taxpayers. The tax benefit may provide preferences to certain categories of payers not only on the duty to pay tax, but also on the duty of tax accounting and tax reporting. The use of tax benefits is not the responsibility of the taxpayer, but is implemented by his will regarding the use of tax exemption or refusal thereof. It is absolutely logical and consistent to link preferential tax regimes with such powers of participants of tax legal relations, through the implementation of which there is a duty to pay tax.

Dismissal of Civil Servants Due to Loss of Trust: Problems of Theory and Practice  Pdf 16

V. I. Kuznetsov, Yu. V. Truntsevskiy, L. A. Lomakina

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

The incorporation of a set of rules on termination of an employment contract with an employee due to loss of confidence by the employer and its transformation into the maximum measure of disciplinary responsibility for committing corruption offenses, for which disciplinary penalties are provided, is designed to expand the number of anti-corruption legal means in the public service. The response to the application of this measure of legal influence was the increase in the number of appeals to the courts. The practice of resolving court cases shows that the protection of the interests of a civil servant in situations involving the dismissal of a civil servant on anti-corruption grounds is not sufficiently clear.
The purpose of the study is to identify in the regulation of relations arising from the application of anti-corruption measures, areas of improvement of the practice of applying disciplinary punishment against civil servants-dismissal of a civil servant in connection with loss of trust. The aim of the study was to analyze the results of law enforcement practice challenging the dismissal of civil servants for committing corruption offenses.
The use of general scientific methods of analysis and synthesis in the knowledge of legal phenomena is due to the specifics of legal relations arising from the impact on the behavior of civil servants of disciplinary measures related to their dismissal.
The article presents the results of the analysis of law enforcement practice, considers the problems of theoretical character arising as a result of the incorporation of norms of labor law to legislation on civil service and transformation the termination of the employment contract in connection with loss of trust of the head civil servant in the maximum measure of disciplinary responsibility for corruption offenses and given a disciplinary sanction. Also the revealed reasons of recognition by courts illegal of orders on dismissal in connection with loss of trust illegal are specified. The work done has shown the lack of uniformity in approaches to the understanding of service discipline, leading to the possibility of improper application of the norms of disciplinary responsibility for the Commission of corruption offenses by civil servants.
