Abstract.

Mediation in bribery giving is hard to be detected and proved. Law enforcement practice lacks effective methods of combating crimes connected with mediation in bribery giving and graft (art. 291.1 and 204.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), and supposed mediation usually qualified as fraud (art. 159 of the Criminal Code). The subject of this research is the scope of possibilities of conducting a tactical operation “Detaining a corruption mediator (supposed conciliator) - and then a bribe recipient - with a mainour” in order to improve these crimes combating. The aim of this research is to define the elements of this tactical operation and the opportunities to conduct it to improve the effectiveness of detecting, solving and investigating mediation in bribery giving. The authors use the dialectical method of scientific cognition, general scientific and specific methods including synthesis, analysis, forecasting, comparison and others. Based on the analysis of scientific discussion and investigative practice and precedents, the authors describe the algorithm of conducting this tactical operation which usually has two stages: actions in relation to a corruption mediator (supposed mediator) and then - a bribe recipient, if there was any. Special attention is given to the preparation phase of the first stage, and the presence of the reasons for operative-investigative operations, and elaboration of sound trial prospects of the future criminal case even before its opening. The authors conclude that the offered system of tactical and criminalistic recommendations, if it is used, can improve the effectiveness of combating mediation in bribery giving.
