Contestation of normative acts serves to protect violated rights, freedoms and legitimate interests
of citizens and their associations. To appeal to the judiciary and the Constitutional Court of
the Russian Federation for the implementation of human rights protection, the applicant has
to prove that there is a real threat of violation of rights, freedoms or legitimate interests, or
they had been violated. Accordingly, the recognition of a normative act as unconstitutional
or contrary to a higher normative act should subsequently lead to the restoration of violated
rights. However, with the reference to the legal practice, “there is a sense that the courts do
not consider it as a way to protect the violated rights”, because they do not create a favorable
legal consequences for those who disputed regulation. This article discusses specific examples of
judicial practice and a detailed analysis of the findings of the court and the obstacles standing
in the way of challenge procedure regulations are given. The author emphasizes that the court
must always be aware of its function as an authority that must restore the violated rights;
and lawmaker and law enforcer should also be indifferent and to create all conditions for the
judicial protection of rights and legitimate interests of citizens and organizations.
