Abstract. The paper is based on sociological survey survey conducted by the Laboratory of problems of increasing the efficiency of state and municipal management of the South-Russian Institute of Management – branch of Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration. The survey has been carried out in a number of constituent entities of Russia in November-December 2017 in preparation for the Roundtable with international participation “Problems of countering corruption in public and municipal administration and ways of their solution in modern Russia” (February 16-17, 2018, Rostov-on-Don). The authors examine some trends and results that have been marked in counteraction to corruption in recent years, identify the ‘weak links’ in communicative activity that affect the effectiveness of corruption control, and suggest the possible ways to improve the effectiveness of anti-corruption activity.
As a result of this analysis, the authors come to the conclusion that increasing the effectiveness of communicative activities to counter corruption depends on the organization of the depth of research into the nature of corruption and the forms of its manifestation in contemporary Russian society. It seems that in modern conditions, along with the repressive method of suppression of corruption crimes, the strategic direction of combating corruption should be to identify and eliminate the causes and factors that form corruption risks.

Keywords: corruption, bribery, legal regulation, communicative activity, corruption level, causes and factors of corruption, media, anti-corruption education
