Post-Soviet Ukraine: the Ruling Regime in the Political Space of Ukraine, European Choice and Russophobia (Political and Legal Analysis)

Okhotsky E.V.


This article is an attempt to understand what is happening in the system of power and public administration of modern Ukraine from the standpoint of scientific realism and socio - political objectivity. The author touches upon the problems of realization by the Ukrainian state of the interests of its people and values of the European choice, proves, in fact, the criminal essence of implementation in practice of the principles of ukrainism, nationalism and Russophobia, explores the «art» of anti-crisis management of the Maidan government and its effectiveness. The author also presents his vision of the historical lessons of the Ukrainian experience, the reasons for the impasse of many decisions of the current rigidly Pro-Western-oriented Ukrainian regime. The methodological basis of the research was made up of classical methods of scientific and legal research of relations, phenomena and processes in the sphere of modern Ukraine’s politics, public administration and its legal support. This analysis (including system-structural) and synthesis, abduction (hypotheses), induction ( from particular to General) and deduction ( from General to specif ic), history and comparativelaw, opinion polls and content analysis of documents, formal-logical method. The analysis is based on the relevant legal acts, sociological statistics, publications of government officials, scientists and publicists. The analysis shows that the conclusions and official statements of the current Ukrainian leadership in the vast majority of cases do not correspond to reality, that their strategic plans are wrong, contradictory and practically hopeless. At the same time, the Ukrainian experience teaches that even a wrong, not particularly effective and even destructive political course should remain in the field of close attention of the scientific community. The actual practice of political records should examine, assess and consider, trying to understand the essence of problems, investigate the causes of failures and deadlocks, and to draw the appropriate lessons. Objectivity of analysis, impartiality of assessments, sobriety of perception of alternative proposals are necessary in the process of state- building and the inevitable crisis stages with their numerous uncertainties, risks and legal conf licts. We need the ability to predict what difficulties and problems the country may face even in a highly developed economy and a fairly stable political and legal system. The easiest way to look for the reasons for failures on the side, shift the blame to predecessors or bad allies, blame foreign enemies or intractable opposition. It’s far harder to take responsibility, to admit to the lack of visioning and adaptability to constructive action.

Illegal Interference in Internal Affairs Sovereign States of the UN and in the Presidential Elections in Russia as Instrument of US Foreign Policy

Jilkin V.A.


Since signing of the UN Charter on June 26, 1945, that enshrined the principle of non-intervention in internal and external affairs of sovereign states, the United States, within the period from 1945 to 2000, committed over 100 acts of conscious unlawful intervention in the affairs of more than 60 states worldwide with the view of realizing the «colour revolution» scenarios, coups d’état and arranging social destabilization. The attempts of outside intervention in Russia’s internal affairs, in violation of the universally recognized norms of international law and the UN Charter, take place constantly, in fact from the moment of Russia’s proclaiming state sovereignty. The alleged grounds for intervention in the affairs of sovereign states are a special view about the US mission, predominant with the American elite, which is used for the politicians’ public argumentation on their «inalienable right». The main goal of Western intervention in Russia’s internal affairs and the elections is changing the foundations of the constitutional order and political course, violation of the territorial integrity, modifying the composition and structure of the Russian authorities, as well as inf luencing the Russian young people in order to make them a tool for erosion of the national political systems. To prevent the external threats to the sovereignty of the Russian Federation and the attempts to interfere in its purely internal affairs, Russia uses the whole potential of political and diplomatic measures and parliamentary diplomacy, adhering to the generally recognized norms of international law enshrined in the UN Charter, in particular, in Article 2 of the UN Charter, in the Declaration on the Inadmissibility of Intervention in Internal Affairs of States, as concerns protection of their independence and sovereignty, the provisions of international treaties and foreign experience of defending sovereignty and opposing intervention from outside.

On State Sovereignty and the Coming World Order

Kerimov A.D., Khalipova E.V.


The article is devoted to the consideration of a complex of problems relating to state sovereignty primarily of Russia and the future geopolitical world order. The authors proceed from the premise that in the conditions of globalization, which has won on a world scale, and the intensively developing processes of globalization, to preserve sovereignty, especially economic, no state is fully able to do so. The coming world order will be characterized by the existence and active activity on the international arena of three or four superpowers, possessing almost all the fullness of state sovereignty and in an extremely strict form dividing the territory of the globe and the global economy into spheres of influence. These states include the United States, China and, most likely, Russia. The fourth actor of this level can be that country that in the next 20-30 years will achieve the greatest success in the military and economic fields. All other countries will practically lose their state sovereignty (primarily economic and, as a consequence, its other kinds) and will be in one or the other, more or less, in a subordinate position in relation to the aforementioned powers.Russia will be able to maintain and consolidate its sovereignty, and again, along with the United States (in the near future, with the PRC and possibly another country), will gain the status of a superpower. But this will happen onlyif its ruling elite pulls out of its ranks numerous pro-Western, liberal-minded representatives of the «fifth column» and will become nationally oriented, nationally responsible and absolutely open. The authors hope that such self- purification of the ruling elite can occur bloodlessly.

Aspects of Information Security of the Russian Federation

Khaliullin A.I.


The scientific article considers issues of ensuring international information security, the component of which is the information security of the Russian Federation. High-tech methods and characteristics of the criminal space for committing crimes in the field of computer information determine their effectiveness. At the same time, there is no common position of states in the issues of countering cybercrime, which is predetermined, among other things, by the different level of penetration of information technologies. Despite the efforts of the Russian Federation to formulate rules for networking, including the inadmissibility of violating the information (network) sovereignty of states and other proposals put on the agenda of working groups at the UN, they do not find support from individual groups of countries. The absence of universally recognized borders in the network space, as well as procedures for interaction between law enforcement agencies in order to counteract cybercrime, forms a potentially conf licting information environment with a relatively low level of security. Identifying, suppressing and investigating cybercrime is, in most cases, complicated by the transboundary nature of the acts committed, which involves coordinating the efforts of law enforcement agencies of different states.Currently Russia is implementing a set of measures aimed at the regulatory regulation of the use of procedural documents in electronic form in order to accelerate the interaction of participants in criminal proceedings and reduce the terms of criminal proceedings: material evidence in criminal cases is electronic media containing electronic documents; separate elements of electronic document management are introduced. However, the legislation of the Russian Federation in the information sphere, as well as the practice of its application, needs further improvement.A special place among the subjects of counteracting the dissemination of information on the Internet, the circulation of which is limited in the territory of the Russian Federation, is assigned to the bodies of the Procurator’s Office of the Russian Federation, which not only oversees the implementation of laws throughout Russia, but also directly eliminates the causes and conditions that contributed to the commission of cybercrime.

Legal Responsibility in Civil Society

Uvarov A.A., Uvarov A.A.


The article discusses the various types of content and legal liability in civil society. In the analysis of the concept of positive responsibility points to the fallacy of its identification with a political responsibility. The legal effect of a positive responsibility can be interpreted as a principle or interest, which are designed to provide not only the rights and freedoms, but also the interests of citizens. It draws attention to the feature of responsibility to the state business community, which is sometimes interpreted broadly as a social responsibility, and in practice is often associated with the violation of the rights of business structures.The article proposes to eliminate the legislative gap regarding the responsibility of the representative body of local self-government to the population by including the relevant provisions on the use of a population of mandatory and advisory forms of responsibility to this body. Describing the action of public and corporate inf luence on violators of the relevant social norms, the authors show their distinctive features, highlighting the proactive, preventive nature of these measures with respect to measures of legal liability, the applicable public authorities.In conclusion, we discuss the various purposes of legal liability in civil society, draws attention to the ambiguity of the positive potential of the empowerment of civil society at the expense transferred by it of certain state functions, as outside the legal regulation remain many questions about the conditions and the adoption of these structures sometimes their illegal decisions.

Is It Needed to Criminalize Abuses in the Field of International Sports?

Maksimov S.V.


In the article, a thorough analysis of legislation in the sphere of sport regulation is carried out; The status of the organizers of international official sports competitions is explored in detail. Particular attention is paid to the IOC. The author broadly describes the structure of the IOC administration, the powers of the IOC governing bodies, addresses the issue of the fairness of IOC referring to non-profit organizations, indicating high profitability from international Olympic activities, as well as sole ownership and disposal of the Olympic property. Attention is also drawn to the specific status of the IOC as a pseudo-judicial body.Further in the article questions of a legal status of participants of the legal relations arising in connection with carrying out of the official international sports competitions are mentioned. It is concluded that the provisions of the Olympic Charter contradict the UN International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 1966, which prohibits any discrimination on any grounds. The deprivation of the citizen’s right to know about the reasons for the refusal to realize the legitimate interest, in the author’s opinion, is a specific form of abuse of the law.The problem of criminal liability for abuse of persons performing administrative functions in international organizations, in the sphere of organizing and organizing international sports competitions is raised. It is proved that the current Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and its art. 184, 201, 230.1, 230.2 do not fully protect the rights and legitimate interests of stakeholders, which is also confirmed by the fact that the extent of the practice of applying these prohibitions does not ref lect the actual extent of the problem. The author analyzes the current criminal legislation of the Russian Federation on the responsibility for the abuse of persons performing managerial functions in the non- state sector (including in the sphere of organizing and holding international sports competitions), and the practice of its application; shows that the relevant legislation does not provide for the purposeful prevention and suppression of socially dangerous actions of persons exercising authority in the sphere of organizing and conducting international sports competitions in sports, for abuses that are associated with violation of the rules established by the regulations (charters) of such organizations, as well as with use of their powers in violation of the principles of international law, which caused significant harm to the rights and legitimate interests of the athlete new and teams of athletes, organizations, law-protected interests of the state. In this regard, it is proposed to supplement the Criminal Code with a new article 201.3 «Abuse of powers in the organization and conduct of official international sports competitions».

Constitutionalization of International Law in Light of Modern International Relations

Aznagulova G.M.


Within present-day globalization processes, we witness internationalization of the state law order while constitutionalization of the international relations and international law gains more importance. The paper discusses the process of international law constitutionalization as an embodiment of general human values in the state law in accordance with the views of Academician T.Ya. Khabrieva. The author demonstrates that the international law constitutionalization must have the sources of state law as its basis and must take into account the world political and legal experience as well as the doctrinal items of the national legal studies. Kant’s «eternal peace» idealistic as it might seem, however devoid of illusions, may and must serve the basis for «the dialogue among civilizations» and the leading principle of the global world existence, stabilization of the foundations of world order declared by the League of Nations and the United Nations Organization. Immanuel Kant’s ideas that are stated in his writings stipulate the idea of peace. These ideas were in fact the basis of the most relevant international political and legal documents including those in human rights. The ideas are topical nowadays and are of interest in present-day theory and practice of international law and international relations. The author emphasizes the practical value of Kant’s categorical imperative for the law.

Monetary Surrogates:the Looking Glass of Modern Regulation

Pechegin D.A.


«Current legislation of the Russian Federation establishes a variety of currency restrictions, which are a set of rules established by the state, designed to protect the national currency to affect the behavior of participants in foreign exchange transactions by imposing prohibitions or additional encumbrances on certain foreign exchange transactions». One of the such rules is the provision of art. 27 Federal Law No. 86-FZ of 10.07.2002 «On the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (the Bank of Russia)», according to which the introduction in the territory of the Russian Federation of other monetary units and the issuance of monetary surrogates are prohibited.
