AUTHORS: Kazun A. , Titova M.
ABSTRACT: Since 2011 Russian authorities have taken a number of measures aimed at protecting entrepreneurs from raiding. Basing on publications in the media about the violent pressure on business (4947 articles in 2011 and 3703 articles in 2015), we shown that the instruments of raiding attacks had changed by the year 2015. So by 2015, this time the methods of "white" raiding have become more widespread, namely, the use of loopholes in legislation. However "gray" and "black" raiders are still active in Russian regions? although they have become much riskier
