The paper contains the author’s analysis of the issue of ontological consistency of the western neoliberal and postmodernist concepts of the Rule of Law and the supremacy of law in the context of those events happening in the global world which are realizing the scenario of full-scale economic war of the “western coalition” countries against Russia. It is highlighted that ideological and axiological basics of the Russian legal culture have a variety of substantial differences in compare with those legal models which are implemented by the western “democracies”. For this reason, it is necessary for Russian Federation to refuse the way of following by the concept of the Rule of Law which was implanted in our country during the last three decade in its neoliberal, pro-western meaning, and to focus on rebuilding of legal-social state achieving that economic and socio-political mode, when law becomes the direct synonym of social equity. It is concluded that such a result is possible and necessary for our country by performing as the political, military and economical mobilization, as the legal mobilization and moral uplift.
