- Among the most leading principles of international law the rule of law stands out the most. The existence and functioning of the modern international legal order are based on the fundamental and universally recognized principles of international public law enshrined in the following documents: the Charter of the United Nations of 1945 (7 principles); the Declaration on Principles of International Law concerning Friendly Relations and Co-operation among States in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, adopted by Resolution 26/25 (XXV) of the United Nations General Assembly on 24 October 1970 (7 principles); the Declaration of Principles of the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe (Helsinki 1975) (10 principles). The quantitative formation of the modern system of principles of international public law contains only 10 principles that are recognized by the member states of the international community of states and legalized in more than ten thousand international treaties of different levels by means of their consolidation in the preambles of such treaties. Furthermore, in the age of legal globalization, which is new and the most integrated form of globalization, the rule of law becomes of increasing importance and development. Firstly, this principle is directed at the synergistic interaction of the legal systems of the member states of the United Nations with the purpose of the same approach to regulation of a wide range of issues, which, on the one hand, are the subject of regulation of national law, and on the other hand, they have already become the subject of international legal regulation (human rights, democratization of public administration, electoral law, local self-government, etc.). Secondly, it aims to ensure the supremacy of the norms and principles of international law in the activities of states, both at the international level and in domestic activities in accordance with their international legal obligations, which they have taken upon signing bilateral and multilateral international treaties.
