2. “Proportionality test”: fundamental professional doctrinal approaches to the comprehension

The first is associated exclusively with a balance between (sometimes, it is used the words combinations “fair balance”, “smart balance” (Great encyclopedia, 2017) public and private interests, thus its identification with “commensuration”, “dimensionality”, “proportionality” (Yevtoshuk, 2015).

Legal and regulatory framework of the relevant kind of “special” restriction is well-established by the international anti-corruption standard.
