Abstract (English):
Children are seen as objects of increased protection. Therefore, they cannot be subjected to the same criminal-repressive methods as adults. As a rule, minors belong to the sphere of juvenile justice. The Anglo-Saxon legal model of juvenile justice is the closest to the Russian one in terms of methods of legal regulation. Its experience may help to improve the Russian juvenile legal system to make it reflect the national legal realities. According to the Anglo-Saxon juvenile justice, young offenders face either punitive measures created specifically for them or those that apply to adults. The criminal code of the Russian Federation uses the same approach. In the Anglo-Saxon system of juvenile justice, the main types of exemption from criminal punishment involve probation, parole, and restitution. They differ from those stipulated by the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation as they possess a greater degree of individualization. In some cases, these tailored measures can be applied to minors under 21 years old.
