In this blog post, Maryna Kavaleuskaya discusses the new amendments to Russia's Administrative Code, which will impact how companies operating in the country handle potential bribery carried out by employees. "While it is too early to evaluate the practical impact of these regulatory changes," Kavaleuskaya writes, "companies operating in Russia now potentially have a stronger incentive to report bribery by employees and should focus on reflecting these regulatory changes in their anti-corruption compliance programs and approaches."
