Romanova Anastasia Sergeevna
The article raises questions about the characteristics of the qualification of hooliganism based on the subjective side of the crime, as well as based on the alternative mandatory feature of hooliganism, provided for in part 1 of article 213 of the criminal code of the Russian Federation.

Based on the doctrinal provisions of experts in the field of criminal law and materials of the judicial practice of the Russian Federation in cases of hooliganism for 2018 and 2019, the author analyzes the issues of distinguishing the hooligan motive from hooligan motives.

The author comes to conclusions that confirm the need for the Supreme court to explain what is meant by the hooligan motive (hooliganism motive) and how to distinguish it from other motives, given that it is not specified. Attention is focused on the question of whether such a feature as “publicity” can be considered as a mandatory feature of the composition of hooliganism. Mentioned the question of the relationship and distinguishing disorderly conduct, perfect for transport from article 213 of the criminal code and from article 267.1 of the criminal code. In conclusion, the author concludes that it is permissible to partially decriminalize hooliganism in order to improve judicial practice.
