The article analyzes socio-political processes at the Russian Far East in recent years. The explanatory scheme used by the author is a “duple” model of region’s development: extension (when the country is on the rise) and compression (at the time of socio-economic or political disorder). In the latter case the region transfers to a conservation regime characterized by loosening of state control, focus on local types of economic activities, and trans-border cooperation. L.Blyakher and L.Vasilieva see the specificity of current situation in that the decrease of state “injections” into the region today is not followed by loosening of local activities, but rather by greater control and blocking.
