The research methodology includes the dialectical method and the set of general scientific methods, including logical and historical, the method of advancing from the abstract to the concrete, and specific scientific methods (comparative jurisprudence, statistical methods, system analysis, interpretation of law, etc.).

Abstract: This article is devoted to the important problem of the Russian administrative and tort law – the application practice of the most common administrative punishments in Russia – administrative fine, disqualification of an individual and administrative arrest. Despite the fact that almost thirteen years have passed since the Russian Code on Administrative Offences was adopted, this primary legal document regulating all matters related to administrative responsibility in this country still features serious legislative voids which adversely affect the situation with the legal order here. Many of such voids can easily be identified in Chapter 3 of the Russian Code on Administrative Offences dealing with administrative punishments. Methodologically, this article is based on the achievements of the cognitive theory. During the research, the general philosophical, theoretical methods (dialectics, systematic method, analysis, synthesis, analogy, deduction, observation, modeling), traditional legal methods (formal logic) and the methods used for case studies (statistical, expert review etc.) were used. The scientific novelty of the above research lies in the fact that the authors have, for the first time, studied the causes for the inefficiency of applying the types of administrative punishments which are the most common in the Russian Federation. The article proposes specific measures to be taken to improve the currently effective administrative and tort law aimed at further optimization as relates to lawmaking and law enforcement.

Dolgikh I.P., . - On legal elements of the nationality issue. pp. 45-53


Abstract: The article is devoted to one of the topical problems of modern Russia - the practice of identifying and reflecting in normative legal acts and other documents, proving the legally relevant facts the nationality of a citizen of the Russian Federation. In spite of the fact that when the Constitution of the Russian Federation of 1993 was adopted, it seemed that the issue of the complex of rights related to the national identity of a person was resolved, the topicality of current scientific discussions on identity of a person due to him belonging to a certain ethnos makes us analyze the relevant norm of the Basic Law more and more scrupulously. The Russian legal doctrine lacks a uniform methodological approach to the interpretation of constitutional provisions on the right of citizen to identify and to reflect his national identity.  Having analyzed the various approaches to the issue, the author evaluates the problem through the prism of legal practice. The novelty of the article is due to the way the problem is set and to the method of its resolution. The author pays attention to the issues which were not duly studied previously. The type of the article is a problem-oriented theoretical article. The methods are traditional. In the process of studies the author makes a conclusion that the constitutional provisions on the right of a citizen of Russia to identify and reflect his national entity is currently implemented incompletely, since some provisions of by-laws are not in correspondence with the Constitution.  The author proposes specific solutions to the problems, which are aimed at improvement of the legislative basis regulating the issues of public national policy.
