The history of the institution of the Supreme Court dates back to January 4, 1923. The modern legal status of the Supreme Court was established by the Constitution of the Russian Federation, adopted on December 12, 1993. The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation is the highest judicial body for civil cases, cases to resolve economic disputes, as well as criminal, administrative and other cases. In the procedural forms provided for by the federal law, the Supreme Court conducts the judicial oversight over the activities of courts addressing civil cases, cases to resolve economic disputes, criminal, administrative and other cases as a supervisory-instance court, as well as a court of appeal and cassation within its competence.
