The research review on plastic deformation and fracture of solids based on physical mesomechanics is presented. A solid under loading is considered in physical mesomechanics as multilevel self-consistent system, where the plastic flows at micro-meso- and macrolevels are natrually interrelated according to the principle of scale invariance. Bulk mesovolumes are moved at the mesoscale level according to scheme "shear+rotation". Plastic deformation and fracture of solids are considered as two stages of the same process.
