The “Round Table”, being essentially interregional, is due to reflect the main aspects of countering corruption considered as the mostly destructive phenomena of modern legal life of many societies including the Russian one. These aspects contain the following activities of state power bodies, municipalities, institutions of civil society, organizations and citizens aimed to: a) prevent corruption and to indicate and eliminate causes of corruption (corruption prevention); b) indicate, prevent, suppress, solve and investigate corruption crimes (countering corruption); c) minimize and (or) liquidate the consequences of corruption offenses. Overall conclusion based on combined analysis of speeches and reports assumes that countering corruption must be permanent and leaded by such priorities as introducing appropriate standards for state and municipal bodies' services and reduction of corruption capacity of the Russian laws. The authors claim to face strict necessity to create state anti-corruption legal policy represented by reasonable, logic and systematic activities of state and society institutions of countering corruption. The general purpose of such policy is to minimize corruption practices in legal life of the society
