Abstract:The opinion that the procedure of applying an administrative arrest violates some articles of the Constitution of the Russian Federation and some provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights is unreasonable. The Constitution of the Russian Federation entertains a possibility of limitation of the right to liberty and security of a person when it is required according to the procedures provided by the legislation, in accordance with the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, which says that detention of a person convicted by an authorized court is a permitted violation of the prohibition on deprivation of liberty. Administrative penalty as a form of administrative arrest is one of the methods of public enforcement applied to the most malicious offenders. Executors of law represented by judges have a quite effective instrument to control the situation in cities and towns of the country.
