Despite the fact that public events establishing mainly depends on citizens who organize and take part in them, still there is a lot of questions about authorities who also participate in organization. This paper focuses on authority`s actions around establishing and carrying out different types of public events. For such aim we will use system of historical and legal analysis, competitive analysis, deduction and induction, analysis of domestic low and the low in different countries. We hope to find low-gabs and systematic in rules-abusing. The aim of my research is the right of citizens to conduct public events as part of the administrative and legal status. I also want to identify main law-gabs in sphere of public events and also find ways to improve the regulation. Background. Ensuring the freedom of assembly is a critically important problem in modern Russia. Especially its relevance is increasing in connection with the elections to the State Duma, which will be held in September of the current two thousand and twentieth year. Any election is an acute political struggle in which rallies, pickets and other types of public events were and remain important elements and need precise and effective regulation. It seems to us that the main problems in this area are unreasonably strict punishment for violating the rules for holding public events, the lack of socio-economic, political, spiritual, cultural, legal and a number of other guarantees for realization of their constitutional right of freedom of assembly. Also, there is a problem about the low level of civil society. The legislator has given state executive bodies more than enough broad powers in area of coordination and control over public events. So, it naturally leads to abuse. Often, authorities refuse to let the event start on the proposed place. Furthermore, they can offer a hard-to-reach spots on the outskirts of the city or even outside it as an alternative place for holding. Sometimes it happens so brazenly than might look like total mockery. For example, in Izhevsk local authorities refuse to approve an event in the place where it had to be hold. Instead of this they told the event might be hold only at the cemetery! They told that it is only because all the other places in the city have already been picked by others. Such abuse can have completely different goals, from extorting a bribe to harassing political and commercial rivals. The main contribution of this study is in the analysis of the key legislation rules, ways of their improper use and establishing the methods of protection. Our findings advance the law about public events is too cruel with people who organize an event and also not strict enough. It leads to misunderstanding and abusing the low by authority which should support an events and shouldn`t deny them for no reason. The gap lies in the absence of concretization and analysis within a framework of administrative barriers and government control made by state authorityes in violation of the civil rights of freedom of assemble. The paper seeks to establish a complex observation in the research area and the overall picture of the system as the main result. Problem statement.
