The article is devoted to the analysis of international law acts, which guarantee the protection of the rights of aggrieved persons in criminal proceedings. It is emphasized that, in recent decades, the international community has adopted a number of important international legal documents in the field of protecting human rights and freedoms, including aggrieved persons (crime victims). The norms of both universally recognized documents and documents of the regional level, that is, those developed by the Council of Europe and set forth in the relevant Recommendations have been cited and analyzed. The need for further implementation of international norms and principles to compensate the victim for harm caused by a criminal offense against him is noted. It is established that the provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure of Ukraine 2012 regarding the protection of the rights of the aggrieved person require further improvement. According to the results of the study, three main stages of the development of international law acts to ensure the protection of the rights of the aggrieved person in criminal proceedings have been identified. Also, the priority directions of the elimination of legislative gaps on the investigated issue are indicated.
