Annotation: Sanitary and epidemiological processes against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic have confirmed the prevalence of legal feignfullness in Russia. For a long time, legal feignfullness has been officially mentioned only in the Civil Code of the Russian Federation and has been assessed by the state and society quite neutrally. The assessment has not changed much even with the recent introduction of administrative responsibility for feigned accounting, although the nominally in this branch of law assessment of legal feignfullness has become negative. Against the background of anti-COVID sanitary and epidemiological measures, the neutral attitude of society to legal feignfullness changed to a negative one and coincided with administrative and legal negative assessment of legal feignfullness. This makes it topical to eliminate the negative consequences of legal feignfullness in the sanitary and epidemiological sphere; to determine the legal means of blocking conflict-causing factors; to prevent new manifestations of legal feignfullness. It is revealed that the high alert mode is largely feigned, covers up a “hybridˮ regime of a dubious legal nature with an unreasonable amount of legal restrictions and insufficient state guarantees. The interpretation of the Presidium of the Supreme Court worsens, in comparison with the law, the legal fate of persons brought to justice for violating the “anti-COVIDˮ rules. All this generates social tension and distrust of the anti-pandemic measures of the state as feigned ones. The article contains recommendations for neutralising the consequences of legal feignfullness. In addition, the increase in social tension against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic further demonstrated the existence of feigned legal phenomena of a general social nature, in particular, in the areas of federalism, legality, as well as solidarity of the state and society.
Keywords: feignfullness, feigned legal phenomenon, sanitary & epidemiological well-being, high alert mode, hybrid mode, anti-COVID legislation, COVID-19 pandemic.
