Holosnichenko D. I., Yarosh I. S. The system of organization of authorities in determining the state regime.

The authors of the article consider the place of organization of executive authorities in determining the state regime through the provisions of administrative law. The article emphasizes the importance of functioning of a democratic regime as opposed to authoritarian and totalitarian regimes.  Attention is also drawn to the fact that in democratic regimes, the focus is on the individual and his rights. Contrary to this assertion, a parallel is drawn with the Soviet command and administration system, which centered on the state. In addition, the article indicates that the existence of a state regime depends to a large extent on the power and administrative activity of the authorities, as well as the internal subordination within the system of authorities. The article highlights the fundamental principles and institutions of a democratic society and the state, in particular the principle of separation of powers and the rule of law. The system of interaction between the state and society, citizen and executive bodies, state bodies and local self-government bodies is considered.  Attention is drawn to the main models of interaction between executive authorities and local self-government bodies. Also, the article deals with the main task of the science of administrative law in order to better understand the concept of «state regime». The article draws attention to public administration entities, their rights and responsibilities, where their management activities play a major role. It is emphasized that non-legal methods and forms of government are a sign of undemocratic state regimes. It is also emphasized that the transition from command and control remnants of the Soviet system continues and that is why Ukraine continues to carry out new reforms. Because of this, the state and society are constantly experiencing waves of ups and downs.

Key words: state regime, system of organization of the authorities, subjects of public administration, state, society, person.
