Corruption can be eliminated only with global trustful

Objective: to identify the relationship and correlation of corruption with other social phenomena and, basing on the analysis of the above phenomena, to develop the new legal measures on anti-corruption.

Methods: dialectical approach to cognition of social phenomena, allowing to analyze them in historical development and functioning in the context of the totality of objective and subjective factors that determined the choice of the following research methods: formal-logical, comparative-legal.

Results: basing on the analysis of scientific literature and legislation on combating corruption, it was revealed that financial corruption is the major point of contention of the world’s smooth development, and non-monetary corruptions are directly or indirectly relevant of it. International as well as national corrupt monetary flows are as bold and resourceful as the legal finance. The corrupt world of individuals or groups is far away
from legal hand of punishment. Effective anti-corruption measures are invisible from the activities of global powers. Struggle against corruption requires joint efforts of mass involvement and global unified action without any bias. The peoples of China and India like countries are so important in number concern. The awareness among such big populations of developing countries plays a vital role to force the respective governments in
favour of this long fight as these peoples are suffering most in daily-life from corruption. Besides, the low standard of living in many countries of the world is actually resulting from corruption.

Scientific novelty: for the first time the article considers characteristic features of corruption in the world, and identifies the relationship of corruption with other social phenomena in different countries.

Practical significance: the main provisions and conclusions of the article can be used in research, enlightenment and educational activities in addressing the issues related to combating corruption.
