The processes of Soviet Union disintegration back in the 1990s have negatively influenced the Russian Federation’s economic environment. According to some experts, the total volume of cross-regional economic relations became 4 times lower. There was practically a split of the economy into the export sector and the sector working for the domestic market solely. Under such developmental conditions, achievement of sustainable economic growth, the rise of the country’ competitiveness and its transfer to the innovative model of development directly depends on successful overcoming of the current autarkic tendencies. This requires the reform of cross-regional relations’ system aimed at efficient use of territories’ competitive advantages, in the interests of both standalone regions and the state as a whole. Solution of all the related problems belongs to the competence of federal and regional authorities interested in transition of Russian industries into the truly innovative ones.
