Abstract: The anti-corruption principles established by the legislation of Russia are represented by state cooperation with civil society institutions, international organizations and individuals. This work gives the author’s interpretation of “civil society institution” concept. In order to disclose and implement the provisions of the law, they formulate the criteria to classify various associations of citizens as civil society institutions. The study describes the possible trends of joint activities of regional government bodies of the Russian Federation and civil society institutions on anti-corruption issues. According to the Decree of the President of Russia, specialized anti-corruption bodies have been created in each constituent entity of the Russian Federation – the commissions for coordination of efforts to combat corruption, which are endowed with serious powers described in the work. The composition of these commissions may include the representatives of public chambers, scientific and educational organizations, as well as public organizations whose statutory tasks is to participate in the fight against corruption. Such a solution makes it possible to increase the transparency of government body activities and improve public control over it. Based on the results of the work, they formulate main conclusions, proposals and recommendations for state bodies and civil society institutions. The thesis is proved that the principle of cooperation between the state and civil society institutions in the activities of the commissions for anti-corruption work coordination in a number of Russian regions is not implemented or is implemented formally. The statement is substantiated that the inclusion of civil society institution representatives in the commissions is often takes place on the basis of loyalty (“convenient sampling”).
