The reaction of the urban population of the Far East of the USSR to loan campaigns in the 1930s–1941

download russian text
On the basis of archival documents, the reaction of the urban population of the Far
East of the USSR to the organization and conduct of state loan campaigns in the 1930s
is analyzed. It justifies the idea that the reaction of the population was ambiguous and
depended on various political, ideological and socio-economic aspects of the life of the urban
population of the region. For some, material problems (poor supply, low wages, housing
shortages, etc.) were fundamental in the formation of a certain, usually critical, reaction.
For others, these problems were minor and were temporary, which would be obsolete with
time, the main factor for them was the ideological factor, the conviction that the building of
a socialist society would be soon. It was these people who were used by the authorities as
voluntary assistants who contributed to the development of borrowing policy of the state
in Far Eastern society.

Since 2015 the experience in using new laws that have been launched by the
Russian Government at the Russian Far East (RFE) and projects for investments have
been discussed at the sessions of the Eastern Economic Forums (EEF), thus contributing
to the development of the RFE and its incorporation into NEA integration space. Despite
the importance of tasks solved by Russia at the forums, there is practically no scientific
literature that is summarizing and characterizing information on EEFs over the past
years, and therefore the high relevance of the topic, and scientific and practical value of the
article are beyond any doubt. The purpose of the work is to study priority areas of economic
development and cooperation promoted by Russia in the format of the Eastern Economic
Forums, while the basis of the article was an analysis of scientific literature and statistical
reports on the results of the forums.

socio-economic processes and phenomena.

The Arctic in US Foreign Policy

download russian text
The article deals with the emergence and development of the us Arctic strategy. The
key historical moments that influenced the emergence of the modern Arctic policy of the
country are analyzed. Due to the harsh climatic conditions, remoteness, underdeveloped
infrastructure, the Arctic direction of American policy has traditionally been not a priority
for Washington. The growing pressure of the US public on the need to adopt the strategy and
turn the US into an "Arctic nation" was completed in 2009, at the end of the administration of
J.Bush, when the strategy entitled "presidential Directive on national security"was finally
adopted. The us strategic course in the Arctic region has undergone minimal changes since
1994. In many ways, economic, military, political and environmental interests remain the
Foundation of Washington's policy in the Arctic. In many ways, economic and militarypolitical
interests remain the Foundation of Washington's policy in the Arctic. If we talk
about the near future, in addition to the environmental direction, Washington's overall
strategy for the Arctic should not undergo any significant changes. This is largely due to
the fact that the majority of American officials in charge of the us Arctic policy remained in
their places under D. Trump. Despite the emerging growth of us interest in the Arctic, the
military-political situation in the region remains quite predictable and stable.
