Annotation: A quarter of a century is a considerable time for any state, especially for a state whose name is Russian Federation. The 90s of the last century walked through the fate of millions of people in the hardest way. The society has gone through a most serious transformation of the country: from state regulation to a market economy, from a one-party system to a multi-party one. It was a time when the country’s leadership did not have a clear plan for change, society turned out to be at a historic crossroads. These processes were accompanied by unbelief, depression, the economy was falling apart, people’s well-being fell below a critical level. In such a difficult time, 1993 became a turning point, the referendum on the Constitution became an act of social consent. Article 7 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation states: “The Russian Federation is a social state whose policy is aimed at creating conditions ensuring a decent life and the free development of a person.” The article is devoted to the study of the implementation of the principle of social justice. Based on actual sources, the article concludes that one of the most important demands of society is the restoration of social justice. The unresolved nature of many problems affecting, above all, the material interests of the overwhelming majority of citizens in various spheres of life, is extremely painful for people. The author sees a way out of this situation in establishing the main reasons that give rise to social tensions at this stage of development of Russian society, and on the other, to find approaches to relieve or smooth out these tensions through further economic reforms that would meet the interests of the overwhelming majority of the Russian population.
