Law of the Russian Federation No. 5473-1 of July 21, 1993 “On institutions and bodies that execute criminal penalties in the form of deprivation of liberty” is one of the key normative legal acts in the field of execution of criminal penalties, along with the Criminal Executive code. At the same time, almost 30 years have passed since its adoption. During this time, significant changes were made to this law. An analysis of its content suggests that this law regulates not only the scope of execution of criminal penalties in the form of deprivation of liberty. This is most clearly seen in the example of the rules on the use of physical force, special means and firearms. However, this law contains a number of gaps, and it is not always clear what scope some of its rules apply to. In the result of the analysis of norms of the law of the Russian Federation of 21 July 1993 n 5473-1 “On institutions and bodies executing criminal penalties of imprisonment”, the author comes to the conclusion about necessity of replacement of this new law, which will regulate the activities not only of the institutions executing imprisonment, but also the activities of all institutions and bodies of criminal Executive system.
