Self-defense is an inalienable, natural right of every person; however, criminally, it is often difficult to exercise this right lawfully. A person can most successfully use the right to self-defense only when he understands exactly what constitutes the right to self-defense and realizes in which cases he acts in self-defense and in which he does not. There are certain conditions for justified self-defense, one of which is that defense should conform to the nature and degree of danger of encroachment, if this is not observed, a situation arises that the limits of self-defense are exceeded. However, despite the wide scientific development of the issue, the dividing line between the legitimate and unlawful behavior of a person who used the right to self-defense is not clear to the investigative agencies and the court. In this regard, it is extremely important to maintain a scientific discussion in order to improve both the law and case law.
