Abstract

The article discusses some issues related to the usage of the concept of explanation in criminal procedure. It is noted that it was still used in the Charter of Criminal Procedure of 1864. In the current Code of Criminal Procedure of the Russian Federation, it is also used to regulate both the status of a participant as well as testimonies and at various stages of criminal procedure. This approach indicates the lack of a unified position on the definition of explanation. The positions of scientists regarding the studied category are considered. The lack of unity among them in determining the legal nature of this phenomenon is stated. A formal analysis of the criminal procedural legislation of individual countries regarding the usage of the term explanation is carried out. Based on the research, individual problems are identified and solutions are proposed.
