What is de jure?

De jure - Latin expression for legal, legal situation. From Latin (“de iure”, “de jure”) is translated into Russian as “legally”.

The expression “de jure” is used in jurisprudence to denote action on the basis of a legal act. For example: "Recognize the de jure state." At the same time, with the “de facto” it would have the meaning of official, but incomplete recognition of the state.

What is de jure in lexicology?

Contrary to popular belief, the expression is not the antonym of the Latin term "de facto" ("de facto"), which means "in fact" or "in fact." But in the text, both concepts can be used both to oppose and to emphasize that the formalities work in practice (“both de jure and de facto”).

Example of use: "De jure money is in charge of the Order of Malta and its branches in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras." That is, "formally the money is in charge of the Order of Malta and its branches."

The juxtaposition: "Well, this is not formalized de jure, but de facto, the Moscow Dozor directs the Patrols of all Russia."That is, "it is not legally registered, but in fact - the Moscow Watch controls the Patrols of all Russia."
