Keywords: court, protection, compensation, harm, physical and mental suffering, a complainant, judicial practice

The article is devoted to a challenging issue of non-pecuniary damage compensation as a way of protection of citizens’ violated rights. The right for protection of honor, dignity and business reputation is one of the fundamental personal non-property civil rights. In conformity with article 23 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, everyone has the right for protection of his honor and good name. The article aims to reveal peculiarities, the order and the amount of indemnity in accordance with statutes in place in the Russian Federation. General provisions of the concept of non-pecuniary damage compensation are analyzed and some examples are provided. Decisions of the Supreme Court of the Chuvash Republic connected with compensation of non-pecuniary damage to life, health, honor and dignity are examined and criteria of non-pecuniary damage and its amount are evaluated. In law enforcement practice courts are often faced with uncertainty in legal regulation of the procedure of non-pecuniary damage calculation. It is the author's opinion that the problem of the lack of precisely defined criteria of non-pecuniary damage compensation and of clear quantification methodology has always created difficulties in decisions of the Supreme Court of the Chuvash Republic. An integrated approach to the study of problematic issues of citizens’ violated rights protection was applied in the investigation. The main results of the study can be used in law enforcement and judiciary authorities’ activities as well as in educational process during seminars and practical classes.
