So, not always courts react to the facts of not identification and not accountability of all persons who committed crimes on abaction.

In some cases to persons who committed serious crimes soft measures penalties are unreasonably imposed. Along with it courts sometimes unreasonably apply imprisonment, including for short terms, to persons whose correction and re-education is possible without isolation from society.

Not always in the cases provided by the law it is applied to persons condemned for abaction, additional measure property nakazaniyakonfiskation.

Measures for ensuring compensation of material damage are not always taken, civil actions of the victims without consideration are unreasonably left.

Courts do not pay necessary attention to identification of the reasons and conditions promoting making of crimes on abaction and taking measures to their elimination.
