Assisted reproductive technologies (medically assisted procreation) have been increasingly
used both in Russia and abroad in recent years. Relationships associated with the use
of these technologies are complex and multi-subject. As for their legislative regulation,
it is clearly insufficient in Russia, and on a number of very important issues it is almost
completely absent. Due to the aforementioned and a number of other reasons, conflicts often
arise between the subjects of this kind of relationship, turning into legal disputes that are
submitted to the resolution of the national judicial authorities. Some of these disputes reach
the European Court of Human Rights, which practice is very instructive and has precedent
significance in resolving cases by national courts. Unfortunately, this practice is not always
adequately taken into account by the Russian courts. The article analyzes some rulings of
Russian courts, including the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation, and rulings
of the European Court of Human Rights on the category of cases it considers, and shows
their significance for Russian legislation and judicial practice.

Keywords: assisted reproductive technologies; Constitutional Court of the Russian
Federation; European Court of Human Rights; Criminal Executive Code of the Russian
Federation; court practice.
