Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


to carry out an analysis of regulatory acts, in connection with the types of administrative responsibility that can
be applied to minors, to provide solutions for the elimination of shortcomings.
Materials and Methods
The research mainly uses regulatory acts related to the types of administrative responsibility applicable to minors. Legal literature and court rulings.
• grammatical method of interpretation;
• systemic interpretation method;
• method of teleological interpretation;
• historical interpretation method.
It is necessary to make amendments to the Law on Administrative Responsibility to ensure that minors who
have received an administrative penalty - a fine - are motivated to fulfill the appropriate coercive means of
an educational nature, thus reducing the amount of the fine. The Law on Administrative Responsibility must
stipulate that an official can apply victim status to a minor, without a legal representative’s request to do so. It
is necessary to amend the existing regulation by determining that the enforcement of fines applied to minors is
carried out against the minor himself, upon reaching the age of 18.
• Coercive measures of an educational nature are not a form of punishment, so the application of these
measures in parallel with the application of administrative punishment is not HDW for double punishment. A complex application of both of these types of responsibility can ensure that the purpose of these
means of responsibility is achieved.
• Enforced execution of the fine - collection from the legal representatives of the minor fined person does
not contribute to the achievement of the goal of the fine. It is unethical for the child’s parents to do
educational work with the child. And such a regulation ensures that parents who are not involved in
raising a child are actually punished twice if an administrative violation process is initiated against them.
