The peculiarities of the formation of administrative and legal foundations of the state anti-corruption policy in Ukraine are investigated. It is found out that in the process of forming and implementing the national anti-corruption policy in Ukraine, a special place belongs to determining the strategy, tactics and specific measures of anti-corruption activity. Accordingly, such a policy should be based not only on the adoption of a package of anti-corruption legislation, but also on the dissemination of knowledge about corruption, the causes of its occurrence and spread, the principles of prevention and counteraction that will contribute to the formation of anti-corruption awareness in society.
A number of problems have been identified in this area. A set of recommendations for resolving them is provided. The directions of improvement of the legislation providing administrative and legal regulation of anti-corruption policy of Ukraine are determined.
