Introduction: the protection of minors against sexual violence is one of the main directions of the criminal policy of the Russian Federation. Investigating the issue of struggling against sexual offences committed by persons with a disorder of sexual preference in the form of pedophilia, special attention should be paid to the repetition of the acts by the covered category of persons who served a sentence for committing similar crimes. The appalling statistics confirm the need to take drastic measures to combat the disease we are investigating, as well as excluding the possibility of parole for the category of criminals we are interested in. The purpose of this research is to analyze the legislation of the Russian Federation regulating the issues of parole for persons serving sentences for sexual crimes against minors, to study various points of view about the possibility of getting rid of the form of paraphilia that interests us by applying special medical measures, as well as to make suggestions for solving the problem under study. Methods: the methods of induction, analysis and statistical analysis are used. Results: the author’s well-founded position is based on the legislation and the opinion of the scientific community on the issue of excluding the possibility of parole for persons serving a sentence for committing a criminal act that infringes on the sexual integrity of minors. The paper presents the brief conclusions and suggestions for improving the Russian legislation in the field of combating recidivism of the crimes we are studying. Conclusions: we have found that parole for persons serving sentences for committing acts of the category under study often leads to deplorable consequences in the form of committing new violent sexual crimes against minors. And despite the provisions in the articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation that complicate the procedure of parole for pedophiles, the number of violent sexual crimes against minors committed by persons who served a sentence for committing a similar crime and are on parole is growing.

Key words: sexual integrity of minors, parole, pedophilia, crime, criminal punishment.
