It is shown that it is worthwhile to connect the correctness problem for the relativistic equations of motion with the problem of a correct metric of the first approximation. Many questions and problems in the description of motion, which have been considered on the basis of the relativistic equations of motion, turn out to be solvable using the first-approximation metric only.
