Abstract. Based on the application of systematic legal and formal-dogmatic approaches, the current paper has analyzed Russian anti-corruption legislation, considered the papers of representatives of scientific schools, and studied law enforcement practice relevant to the subject of the study. There has been concluded that the attention paid in the National Anti-Corruption Plan for 2018–2020 to the application of legal mechanisms to prevent and resolve conflicts of interest was well-founded, since the task has been now set to find new methods of preventing and resolving conflicts of interest not only in public service, but also in organizations established to fulfill the tasks assigned to the Government of the Russian Federation. There has been considered the experience of JSC «Russian Railways» in taking systemic measures, developing and applying methodological recommendations. The obtained result can contribute to the distribution of the Russian Railways’ experience, which can have a positive effect in improving Russian anti-corruption legislation.

Keywords: prevention of corruption offenses; anti-corruption legislation; conflict of interest.
