Annotation: Introduction: introduction into the Civil Code of the Russian Federation of a new legal institution of indemnity, borrowed from Anglo-American law, necessitates its comparative legal studies. Purpose: to reveal features of the Russian indemnity statutory concept based on comparative legal studies. Methods: the methodological framework of the research is based on a set of general scientific and specific scientific methods: dialectical, comparative legal, historical, formal legal, linguistic ones. Results: the features of the Russian indemnity concept revealed testify that it is narrower than Anglo-American indemnity in its content and scope of application. Conclusions: the efficacy of the statutory concept under study will depend on the requirements of Russian courts for proving the amount of loss and causal relationships between occurrence of the relevant circumstance and the loss occurrence, in particular on how strict these requirements will be. It is proposed that when recovering loss through court, providing the court has established the fact of occurrence of the circumstance stated by the parties, the occurrence of loss in the amount contracted by the parties should be presumed.
Keywords: indemnity; express or contractual indemnity; equitable or implied indemnity; hold harmless
