The problem of human rights in contemporary Russia is extremely urgent. According to the authors, without a thorough scientific analysis of the Russian traditions of justice, it is difficult to formulate the national idea and develop the traditions of patriotism in modern Russia. The source of this study is partially represented by chronicles and mostly by mythology of folklore monuments: folk tales, proverbs, tales and songs. This work was carried out by means of multidisciplinary approach and using historical, culturological, legal, linguistic data in the categorical field of cultural philosophy. According to the authors, folklife culture reflects the mentality of people, on the one hand, and on the other hand, creates the standards of behavior, thus forming the foundation of legal culture. The analysis of Slavic mythology and historical sources revealed the intensity of law genesis process of the eastern Slavs long before the formation of Kievan Rus. The authors concluded that the source of cultural and legal components of Russian identity is represented by myth consciousness of young East Slavic ethnic group.
