Abstract

Background. Issues of human rights and their protection at all times have attracted attention of scientists – not only lawyers, but also philosophers, sociologists and representatives of other fields of knowledge. In the framework of international and national legislation, various scientific fields, there are certain interpretations, ideas about the nature of the right to life, its realization and protection. We quite often face violations of our rights, including the right to life. The state undertakes to protect the rights of citizens in the event of a threat to their lifes. However, due to certain circumstances, violations of law may come from a state itself, its direct representatives.
Materials and methods. The research tasks were implemented on the basis of the analysis of international legislation and normative legal acts of the Russian Federation, theoretical concepts of domestic jurists, who made a special contribution to the study of the nature of the right to life.

The results show that the issues of realization and protection of human rights and the right to life in particular have been studied by many researchers – the-oreticians and practitioners in various spheres of social life. The most attractive as-pects of the subject matter include provisions of the origin, the essence of the right to life, as well as the peculiarities of its realization by people, restrictions on rights and ways to protect them.
Conclusions. It is stipulated in the regulation that the right to life is the supreme value, and protection of this right must be exercised by a state on the basis of inter-national, national acts.
