The article investigates the problem of legal support of the participants of criminal proceedings for the implementation of the rights granted to them by the legislator and the proper performance of their criminal procedural duties. Obstacles to the implementation of criminal procedure rights and obligations of normative (gaps, conflicts of legislation) and organizational (illegal actions of subjects, their inaction) nature are identified. The existing views of scientific researchers on the correlation of rights and obligations in the sphere of criminal justice as paired legal categories are studied and analyzed. We analyzed the provisions of the current criminal procedure legislation in Russia from presence/absence of legal conditions ensuring realization of rights and performance of duties by the participants of the criminal process.
