In article are given the statistical data, and the results of psychological and sociological researches testifying the extremely negative moral condition of a modern Russian society. The authors consider the reasons of its moral degradation and ways to improve this position. Among those they designate correction of the freedom concept in public opinion; "moral externalization" by giving to basic ethical standards status of laws and revival of institutes of the moral control. According to the authors, deficiency of the control including moral, instead of freedom lack, is the basic problem of a modern Russian society.

Keywords: morals, society condition, freedom, control, criminalization, law, "brutalization", reforms, economic determinism
