The necessity of setting provisions concerning regional commissioners within federal legislation is settled down with the purpose of universalizing and strengthening state guarantees which provide human rights and freedoms protection. It is being proved that even adopted in 2015 Federal law from 6 April 2015 №76-FZ “On amendments to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation in order to improve Human Rights Commissioners’ activities” has occurred to be unequal to the task. Merits and demerits from this act and also from current relevant subjects’ legislation are noticed and also compared with each other and to the basic principles of functioning of human rights commissioners’ institutes. It is supposed to enlarge the powers with which regional commissioners are vested by granting them the right to go to courts of general jurisdiction and also to statutory courts of subjects. It should be enshrined in federal legislation and be done in order to improve the activities of regional commissioners and to strengthen guarantees of human rights protection on their territories.
