The manual reveals numerous issues of Russian statehood, based on the continuity and variability of the course of historical development. In the study we proposed, the main features and properties of statehood in the field of culture were revealed, taking into account the conditions and stages of development. We analyzed the main elements of Russian statehood, revealed the degree of continuity of the state structure and form of government in the transition from the imperial state to the Soviet and post-Soviet period. The work contains concrete proposals concerning the historical aspects of the formation of the political system in Russia, proposes ways and directions for the further development of modern Russian statehood.




The methods of research are based on the use of a historico-legal and systemic approach to the analysis of the mechanism of the development of Russian statehood. The study is based on understanding the state of culture as a single, dynamic and interrelated phenomenon. The main methodological prerequisite for research is historical continuity in the development of the state and culture, which allows us to consider all the phenomena of the state in their unity and development. The study of state-legal institutions and processes through the prism of statehood required the definition of general laws governing the development of the widespread use of comparative legal, comparative-historical, formal legal methods, as well as methods of state and legal modeling. The interdisciplinary approach plays an important role in the study, taking into account the economic, political, social and cultural factors affecting the development of Russian statehood.
