But this can not be the proper execution if these legal procedures have not been established for the corresponding relations. What to do in this case? Law enforcement goes two ways: 1) the relationship is developing in a direction that is beneficial to a particular subject of the relationship, does not contribute to the protection and realization of freedom; 2) there is no legal basis on which the relationship can occur, which also negatively affects the feasibility of freedom.

Paper main body. There are proved that legal procedures are essential for the realization of freedom, but also draw attention to the consequences that may result from ignoring these procedures. Those legal procedures were performed properly; they must be installed by performing legal actions, namely the adoption of the relevant legal acts, which are built together in a logical hierarchy. Only under such conditions it is possible compliance with these procedures, which will not cause conflicts and contradictions. Disdain for the basic principles of law leads to many negative consequences. The authors analyzed the problem of bureaucracy, huge amount of legal procedures leads to it. Bureaucracy has acutely relevant and painful problem for the whole society, it absorbs freedom in all its forms, prevents the further expansion and deepening of democracy and reform the economy and management.

During heavy social upheavals and socio-economic transformation bureaucracy is expanding its sphere of influence, as evidenced by the present of our country.
