Economic Wars as a Weapon for the Suppression of Sovereignty
It’s always a question of finding your place, so to say, and it’s nice when people are unshackled and change their views

Economic Wars as a Weapon for the Suppression of Sovereignty
The world today is not as unambiguous as you might think; it is quite difficult to achieve one’s goals by economic measures alone. Although, it also depends on the polity of a country. [Winston] Churchill lost the election after his first term, there were some economic reasons for that. Namely, the population was tired of the war, life was pretty tough for people, and Churchill said, ‘The people have the right to vote, that’s what we fought Hitler for’. So, of course, the economy is the most important element of the state structure, and the way politicians manage, including economic processes, affects the sovereignty of the state. But everything is much more complex and harmonious

Small Business – Big Strength
All the efforts of the state to protect entrepreneurs from criminal prosecution have gone nowhere, unfortunately. Special offences were introduced for entrepreneurs under Article 159, but businesspeople were arrested and held in detention, and they continue to be arrested and held in detention. Despite all the President’s calls, Supreme Court decisions, law enforcement at the mid-level, judicial level, continues to be poor

Small Business – Big Strength
I think we need a legal and economic educational program for our officials. Not business, but lower and mid-level officials, they really need to learn. They still look at entrepreneurs as sheep that need to be sheared to the bone. And you and I know that if you want your cow to give milk, or your chicken to lay eggs, you need to feed and water them first, then they will give you what you need

Why Legal Literacy is Vital for Young Entrepreneurs
It’s essential to realize that while the entrance fee may be a rouble, the exit fee can be two. When you want to get into business, becoming self-employed is the simplest option, and the person is not registered as a sole trader. At the same time, this option enables a person to work within a legal framework, and to get a sense of the opportunities available to them. I think this is an excellent option, and it avoids the potential for some errors to be made. A self-employed person can work in virtually any area. We have in effect legalized people who in the past may have been held criminal responsible for running a business venture without the appropriate permits or licence

Why Legal Literacy is Vital for Young Entrepreneurs
Today, without knowledge of the legal profession – without a baseline level of knowledge – it is very difficult in principle to work in a particular field. This is not only true of entrepreneurship, it is also true of working at municipal and government bodies

National Jurisdiction and Trust in International Relations as a Guarantor of Inward Investment
It is very important that the prosecutor is involved. Reviewing all the rules – particularly with regard to producers and entrepreneurs – is a major bureaucratic undertaking. They have been developed over a long period since the time of the Soviet Union. An important role of the prosecutor is to protect the rights and interests of people doing business

The Competitive Edge of National Jurisdictions: Drawing on Russian and African Experience
For the past 4 years Russia–Africa trade reached USD 20 billion. It is a notable growth, nearly twofold, yet it is not enough as historically our countries cooperated a lot: it was not only military and engineering, but culture and education as well

The Competitiveness of the National Jurisdiction: New Directions for Development
In 2018, 21 thousand administrative claims were filed requesting the review of land and structure values in the cadastre. 97.5% of these claims were approved. <…> If so many claims are being approved, you have to wonder: is a systematic approach not working or is it working unfairly?

New laws drafted and adopted to form the legal framework for the national economy’s transition towards a digital path resulted in the Russian jurisdiction acquiring new competitive advantages. Objectives set by ‘traditional’ economy retain their relevance: what are the best international practices that should be used to ensure advanced development of Russian jurisdiction? Where are the limits of the regulator's trust in business? How can improvement of Russian legal system stimulate development of the economy of trust?
