Non-violent Sexual Encroachment of Minors
(Bachelor’s programme)
This research work is devoted to studying the group of non-violent crimes of a sexual nature against minors. The above group includes crimes stipulated by article 134 "Sexual intercourse and other sexual activities with a person under the age of sixteen" and article 135 "Dissolute actions" of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

The main purpose of this work is to study the norms of criminal legislation on non-violent sexual crimes against minors, as well as an attempt to distinguish the group of crimes under investigation from the adjacent elements of the Criminal Code in general and each other in particular.

Based on the goal, a set of tasks can be formed, which must also be resolved during the writing of the research work, namely:

1) To study the historical part of the formation of norms on criminal liability for non-violent sexual assault against minors;

2) Define the concept of non-violent sexual crimes;

3) Identify the characteristic criminal and legal features of the crimes provided for in Articles 134-135 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation;

4) Highlight problematic issues related to the qualifications of the studied group of crimes, as well as justify the need to clarify some conceptual issues within the framework of these criminal law norms.

Achieving the goals and solving the identified tasks in this research work will allow paying close attention to the problematic issues contained in this area of criminal law, which further will lead to the elimination of some gaps existing in the conceptual apparatus when studying the question posed.
