Abstract
Among the means of influencing some states to others, force operations are increasingly used under the slogan of protecting the population of the latter from numerous human rights violations. Their authors and actors call these operations “humanitarian interventions”. However, there are still no clear universal criteria for determining the following: 1) numerous violations of which fundamental human rights should be considered grounds for humanitarian intervention; 2) there is no quantitative criterion - what is meant by “ numerous” human rights violations; 3) there is no explanation - whether to consider the humanitarian intervention a violation of the principles of peaceful coexistence of states. Thus, there are no universal criteria for distinguishing between interventions for the benefit of the people suffering from human rights violations in the troubled state and interventions under the slogans of human rights protection in the troubled state aimed solely at serving the interests of the intervening state. The article offers approaches to answer these questions.
