- The development of information technologies is consistently included in all branches of law. Nowadays, the law enforcement officials are all facing the issues of implementing information technologies which becomes a leading trend. In many countries, the transition to the electronic format of criminal cases has already been implemented, in some countries this process has just begun. The main objective of this paper is to study a set of issues related to the introduction of electronic criminal cases in the Russian criminal process, in particular the possibility of forming criminal case materials at the stage of preliminary investigation in the electronic form. We study the question of positive and negative aspects of the transition to the leading electronic format of criminal cases on the example of similar experience of some countries (e.g. Germany, Switzerland, etc.). Moreover, we consider the issue of using blockchain technology to digitalize the preliminary investigation. Our conclusions show that it is possible to switch to an electronic format of criminal proceedings and use the possibilities of blockchain technology for this purpose. In addition, we list the positive aspects of the use of digital technologies in pre-trial criminal proceedings.
