The paper continues to study the phenomenon of criminal law impact as a specific type of human
activity carried out by the competent state authorities (special state activities) as a response to criminal behavior and crime. The general concept of human activity as a form of active human interaction with the surrounding world has been considered, its main features and types have been analyzed. The authors analyze the distinctive features of state activities related to the provision of criminal law influence, justify its constructive and purposeful nature, systematic organization and functionality, and the connection of the most important social values, moral attitudes, and principles that have historically developed in society. Therewith, it has been announced the need for further, more in-depth, and thorough research of the main elements of the mechanism of criminal law impact: its goals, principles, grounds and means, content and forms, subjects and objects, the process of consistent step-by-step implementation. These issues in the doctrine of criminal law remain poorly developed, while their solution can significantly help in the search and implementation of optimal means to improve the effectiveness of combating crime.
