One of the reasons why struggle against corruption hasn’t been effective enough, is the absence of proactive measures taken by field agents when detecting and investigating the facts of bribe taking and bribery mediation. The research subject of the article is the essence and the content of a proactive legendized sting operation. The aim of the research is to analyze law-enforcement practice in the above mentioned direction, and to determine the potential of such operations in accordance with the current Russian legislation and without the involvement of acts of provocation or incitement. The research methodology includes general scientific methods and special research methods, including those of the forensic science. Based on the analysis, the authors detect the problem of contingent passivity of field agents and investigators and non-use of the proactivity principle in detecting and investigating bribery and other corruption-related crimes. The authors find out that the traditional approach to conducting a sting operation during the investigation of cases related to this category is not effective, and the legislator and judicial practice do not set exact criteria for the conduction of intelligence operations without the involvement of illegal acts of provocation or incitement. Based on the analysis of intelligence operations and investigative activities, the authors formulate the model of a proactive legendized sting operation and the rules, prohibiting the violation of laws, and claim that the proposed approach can significantly raise the effectiveness of struggle against corruption.
