In this article, the author examines the organization of the activities of the national ombudsman (Human Rights Commissioner in the Russian Federation) to ensure human rights in the field of ecology, conducts a structural analysis of the received applications from citizens on environmental issues, and also makes a number of proposals to improve the activities of the ombudsman. Based on the results of the study, the main topics of citizens’ appeals regarding violations of the rules for the environment use and abuse of environmental human rights submitted to the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation were identified. The identification of borderline points by the national ombudsman requires attention in the field of environmental protection of citizens and giving them a public discussion, allows to focus the attention of society and the state on the most problematic aspects of ensuring human rights in the field of ecology, which helps the responsible state authorities to build their work more effectively in this direction, since the state of nature, environment and the ecological situation ultimately affect the development of both individual citizens and society and the state as a whole.
