Abstract: In the conditions of growing geopolitical status of the Arctic region there is a dangerous tendency of its militarization. Many states and the NATO strenghten their presence and activities in the Arctic region, the military forces, which are located in the Arctic region, as well as their infrastructures are being modernized, the military marine fleets are actively used for the protection of  national economic interests, and there are also tendencies for the formation of the new military political associations and coalitions. Russia should follow a balanced position, when choosing its standing regarding remilitarization of the region. On one hand, it should not forget the measures for its defensive capacity in the Arctic region, and on the other hand Russia and other interested states and international organizations should search for mutually acceptable solutions in order to avoid further development of negative tendencies.The formation of a special regional regime for the control over weapons and development of mutual trust could become important priorities for the international cooperation in the Arctic region.

Rabkin S.V. - Strategic industries and guarantees of economic security: the search for a new model of industrialization pp. 1-17


Abstract: The object of this study includes the strategic economic sectors as the most important elements of economic security. The article considers the issues of interrelation between the theory and the practice of reform of state regulation of economy, the interaction between the state and the largest corporations in the strategic sectors of economy, the influence of irrational factors on the choice of a new model of industrialization. The author indicates the general trend of the changing role of the state in determining the sectoral development priorities, regardless of the chosen model of economic development. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of the influence of rational and irrational factors on the formation of a system of industry regulation and the resolution of dilemma «market or nonmarket». On the base of the method of historical analogy and methodology of institutional analysis the author concludes about the necessity of modernization of strategic economic sectors as a basis for economic security. The proposed approach complements the system of assessment threshold values of economic security and creates a real opportunity to avoid a state of "institutional trap" of a new industrialization. For modern Russia it is fundamentally important to return the state to the real economy and to create certain points of economic growth, where the technological breakthrough is possible. The transition to the integrated forms of modernization of strategic economic sectors will allow specialization of national priorities of development in terms of institutionalizing of guarantees for their implementation.
Anikin V.I., Surma I.V. - Russia’s national security: mew approaches in a changing world pp. 1-18


Abstract: The research subject includes the main elements of strategic planning and the key priorities of the Russian Federation. The appearance of the new challenges and threats has caused the necessity to update the 2009 national security strategy of the Russian Federation till 2020. The authors analyze the new national security strategy and note that the tendency to increase and modernize offensive armament, to create and deploy its new kinds significantly weakens the global security system and the established system of treaties and agreements in the sphere of arms control, all the more so as the basic principles of equal and indivisible security are not observed nowadays both in the Eurasian and Asia-Pacific regions and in Euro-Atlantic region. Special attention is paid to the measures of foreign and domestic policy aimed at the national security strengthening and ensuring sustainable development of the country for the long run. The authors apply the multiple factor approach, comparative and express-analysis. Based on the results of the key indexes monitoring and the assessment of the structure of the key characteristics of the national security state, the authors outline the main features and peculiarities showing the domination of the positions of social and economic security and the role of government regulation of the economy as the basis of the national security and internal stability of the civil society. The authors note that in order to protect Russia’s national priorities, the updated national security strategy presupposes adopting an open, rational and pragmatic foreign policy which would exclude a money-losing confrontation and a new armaments drive. The authors emphasize the fact that it is planned to use military force only if all peace-building and diplomatic mechanisms run dry or prove ineffective. 
Kubrin A.A., Kokunova S.D. - Business security as an element of security of the state economic system pp. 1-14


Abstract: The article studies the problem of influence of criminal legislation on one of the fundamental factors of Russia’s economy – private sector. The authors consider the economic system as a matrix of the state and the society. Its safety is the basic premise of national and social security, regardless of its traditional form.

Ponomarev A.I. - Task-oriented methodology of strategic target-setting as a prerequisite for progressive development of society: national security provision (part one) pp. 1-9


Abstract: The paper considers the topical issues of strategic target-setting in the Russian Federation. The part one contains the results of methodological analysis of the national security provision strategies. To prove the importance of target-setting in public management, the author applies the hypothesis that ineffectiveness of measures, aimed at the development of the country, is caused by insufficient target-setting. Strategic target-setting in the sphere of national security provision is characterized by the fact that the key strategical guidelines of national security provision – national interests of the Russian Federation – include the issues of national security provision and the socio-economic development issues. The author explains such a mixture of development and security goals by the absence of a scientifically based vision of the hierarchy of development goals of the society and the provision of its safety. The author applies the methods of formal-logical and comparative analysis, modeling and analogy with the results of other sciences: activity theory, motivation theory, and synergetic. In the author’s opinion, the effectiveness of strategic target-setting can be ensured subject to the fundamental interrelation and interdependence of the national security strategy and the socio-economic development strategy of the Russian Federation. The author concludes that the recognition of threats to the safety of a person, the society, and the state forms the contents of task-oriented target-setting in the sphere of national security provision. 
Ponomarev A.I. - Task-oriented methodology of strategic target-setting as a prerequisite for progressive development of society: socio-economic development (part two) pp. 1-12


Abstract: The paper considers topical issues of strategic target-setting in the Russian Federation. The second part of the study contains the results of methodological analysis of the system of strategic lines in the sphere of socio-economic development of the Russian Federation. This approach helps easily define the appropriateness of the strategic target-setting system, since, knowing the methodology, one can regularly check the conclusions of others from the viewpoint of their method and rely on them as on methodologically correct. The analysis of the current documents shows that by the end of 2016, the has been no formalized long-term strategy of socio-economic development. Therefore, the author considers the content of the “2020 Strategy: the new growth model – the new social policy”, since many of its provisions have been implemented in budgetary and financial policy. The methodological analysis of this document shows that it doesn’t contain any socio-economic development model; it merely offers the set of separate measures, which can’t guarantee any result. The generalization of strategic planning helps the author to conclude that two approaches can be used for target-setting: a target-based and a scenario-based. In the author’s opinion, progressive development can be achieved if these two approaches are combined. The author also reveals some methodological positions connected with a possibility to formulate positive targets of social development in the context of the current condition of social and scientific thought. Targets should be formulated on the basis of values. Interrelation between targets and values is the basis for the assumption about the existence of some targets-values system, which determines the direction of socio-historic movement. The author concludes that the detection of a wide range of initial characteristics of the object of development is the essence of the task-oriented approach in strategic target-setting in socio-economic development. 
bartosh a.a. - Transformation of Modern Conflicts pp. 1-18


Abstract: This paper investigates the determinants of change in modern conflicts in the transition from linear to non-linear models of war. The rationale of the research is caused by the growing tendency of modern warfare to the asymmetric strategies of indirect actions, based on a combination of military efforts with political, economic and informational methods of influence on the enemy for solving problems that were mostly resolved by military means. The methodology is based on a comparative analysis of the strategies of modern war as well as on the analysis of the genesis and evolution of contemporary conflicts. The scientific novelty of research is caused by the fact that work represents one of the first attempts to study the evolution of modern warfare with the involvement of categories of the determinants. The author analyzes two kinds of conflicts, hybrid war and a color revolution as the most prominent examples of the Genesis of war in the era of globalization and information technology revolution. The author gives the detailed analysis of the main components of a hybrid war: the military-political, socio-economic and information. It is shown that in the beginning of the XXI century, with special strength evident by a number of factors contributing to a radical transformation of the meaning and purpose of contemporary conflicts, due to a noticeable shift in the balance of military and non-military forms, means, methods, and technologies not in the power part of the spectrum. The indicated trend is an important factor leading to high-quality modification of indicators determining the conflicts of the new generation of hybrid war and a color revolution. Thus, the transition of contemporary conflicts from the classical linear paradigm to non-linear wars of a new type and the highest form of modern war is a war of civilizations, a war of meanings of their existence. The winner of the war of the senses wins not a space and not even the right to control the resources of the defeated States, but gaining the right to determine its future. This necessitates the development of new strategies to protect the state from a hybrid aggression, which needs to incorporate the non-linear configuration of strategic forces and capabilities.
