Solving the Ginzburg–Landau equation we demonstrate that the paramagnetic limiting of superconducting state in the superconductors without space inversion symmetry is significantly weakened. It is caused by so called magnetoelectric mechanism proving to be effective or not depending of the magnetic field direction and the crystal symmetry.

PACS: 75.85.+t Magnetoelectric effects, multiferroics.

Key words: superconducting state, magnetoelectric mechanism, crystal symmetry.
