Despite the fact that the main legal act regulating the protection of the rights of citizens and their violations in the Russian Federation is the Code of administrative offences (CAO), this document does not contain clear rules establishing the hours allotted to sleep for the night and rest of the Russians.

The establishment of citizens ' right to silence at the regional level

The fact that the right to determine the period of time allotted to sleep and rest, is vested in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. The decision was taken by the legislator on the basis of what local authorities have a better idea of the factors that determine the optimal ratio of modes of work and rest. For example, such factors can be the predominant economic activity in the region, sunrise and sunset and others. Therefore, in most Russian Federation subjects adopted a special regional normative-legal acts, which stipulate the hours you can carry out noisy work and other activities, and when to provide the neighbors peace and quiet.

Mode weekend and weekdays

The independence of the Russian regions in the definition of the modes of work and leisure allows them not just to establish the optimal ratio of these modes, but also to differentiate them depending on the day of the week. However, this right is enjoyed not all the subjects of the Federation.

For example, in Moscow, the time of silence is regulated by Act No. 45 of 21 November 2007, called "the Code of the city of Moscow about administrative offences". Article 3.13 of this regulatory act stipulates that the ban on noisy works and other operations in the city covers the period from 23 to 7 hours regardless of the day of the week, so quiet in the weekdays and the weekend from 7 to 23 hours. And in the Novosibirsk region this issue is regulated by Law No. 99-OZ of February 14, 2003 "On administrative offences in the Novosibirsk region". This law establishes different regimes of the ratio of work and leisure in weekends and weekdays. So, in working days the right of citizens to sleep at night and rest spread for the period from 22 to 7 o'clock local time, and for the period from 22 to 9 hours. So to carry out noisy works and activities in the weekend in this region it is only from 9 to 22 hours.

Thus, planning a repair or a noisy party, you should familiarize yourself with the applicable laws of the region in which you reside. This information will not only enable you to comply with the law and do not fall under the sanctions for the violation of the rights of citizens to rest in the night, but also to protect their own right to silence in the event of a breach.
