The government very often does not like the decisions of court judges.

A well-known German publicist Ludwig Berne once said: "Justice is as important as bread for life."

 Justice as a restrain mechanism does not allow the right to commit evil, to violate the principle of equality, the natural distribution of things and the natural world order, so it is not surprising that one of the main functions of a democratic state is to ensure the human right to a fair trial. In the conditions of the Ukrainian post-revolutionary present, it is the unappeasable hunger for justice that is the reason for the slow growth of the level of public trust in the court.
