The Three Whales: Science, Nature, Humans
People in the Far East are in short supply... The trend has been reversed over the past three decades, and the population of the Far East has fallen by a quarter, by more than two million people. How can we break this trend? I do not know.  People in short supply, nature in surplus

Crisis Management Portfolio for the Far East Regions and Regional Fiscal Sustainability
Revenue from raw materials which are traded on global markets for skyrocketing prices have generated enormous profits. In a great many regions today – including in the Far East – corporate income tax has come out on top as opposed to personal income tax. This is not unusual for Sakhalin. However, overall, this also remains a situation which – if one could put it like this – is characterized by a risk of financial instability on the part of the Russian regions. That is because corporate income tax revenue fluctuates greatly, and could suddenly double, and then plummet in the following period simply due to an emerging lack of profitability

Crisis Management Portfolio for the Far East Regions and Regional Fiscal Sustainability
The Far East is a unique macro-territory in our country, which is also true when it comes to its fiscal system. It’s impossible not to notice this – after all, the Far East accounts for two fifths of the total area of Russia, and if you look at the map, it’s clear that it cannot be disregarded. However, the region nevertheless accounts for a relatively very small volume of Russia’s total budget. In terms of the population, 8 million people is two thirds the population of Moscow. Therefore, when discussing how the Far East should be reflected in fiscal terms, we must always bear in mind that this is a region with its own specific conditions. That is true in terms of finance, geography, and natural features. And there are also all the additional factors which dictate its special status
