Russian backbone agglomerations and national spatial strategy

Russian agglomerations have not yet been acknowledged as equal administrative subjects. However, there are around twenty metropolitan areas in Russia where over the half of the country’s population lives. It is these megapolitan areas that are the engines for Russia’s economy, and their effective development is impossible without determining their agenda and role in the spatial development of the country. ● Which Russian agglomerations are coordinated to the greatest extent and are already fully-fledged subjects, formally divided by administrative borders? ● How do governors, mayors and representatives of federal authorities view the development prospects for Russian agglomerations, and the possible tools for spatial administration and coordination? ● Can self-sufficient centers emerge based on Russia’s most powerful agglomerations, and what regional policy meets this goal?
