2016. No. 2. P. 100–110 [issue contents]
Updating the procedural legislation: adopting the Russian Federation Administrative Procedure Code,drafting a single code of civil procedure, reforms in the common jurisdiction courts and arbitrationcourts, influence of legal opinions of the European Court of Human Rights on the national legal system determined the indispensability of a single level of legal guarantees as an integral part of court proceedings. Implementing the requirements of this conception in procedural legislation is a guarantee of complying with the Russian Federation’s international obligations in the field of human rights andfundamental freedoms. As the requirements to fair trial apply to all stages of the process and all its forms (civil law, administrative, criminal, constitutional), and they meet the criteria of the right to sufficient governance, it can be stated that the level of legal guarantees is unified in the European legalfamily. However, this level is inconsistent within Russian legislation: in judicial and non-judicial process,which poses a challenge requiring urgent solution. A special concern is caused by the legal regulationof inspecting judicial acts in general jurisdiction courts where the higher judicial instance is, the loweris the level of legal guarantees in a procedure. Hence, it is urgent to develop a common approach to ensure a single level of legal guarantees in procedural legislation and to approve it as a prerequisite forreal insuring a person, citizen or organization with rights, freedoms and legal interests. The examinationof the applicable approaches may help to conclude that we are still at the beginning of the path of realizing, developing and setting a single level of legal guarantees of fair trial in procedural legislation.
