The System of Government of the Russian Federation


The Russian Federation was established by the Constitution of 1993. Under the Constitution Russia is a democratic federative law-governed state with a republican form of government. The Russian Federation consists of 89 constituent entities (republics, regions, and territories, cities of federal significance, the autonomous regions and autonomous area, which have equal rights). The authorities of the constituent entities have the right to pass laws independently of the federal government. The laws of the subjects of the Russian Federation may not contradict federal laws.In case of conflicts between federal and local authorities, the President uses consensual procedures to resolve the problem. In the event a consensus is not reached, the dispute is transferred to the appropriate court for its resolution.


The President of the Russian Federation is the head of state. He is the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The President organizes and chairs the Security Council of Russia, signs treaties, enforces the law. The President appoints ministers, who are subject to the approval of the Federal Assembly. He nominates judges to the Constitutional Court, Supreme Court and Court of Arbitration of the Russian Federation, and the Prosecutor-General of the Russian Federation. The President has the right to introduce the state of emergency within the Russian Federation. He announces elections ahead of time. He has the right to suspend the actions of acts of executive bodies of the Russian Federation members, if they contradict the Constitution of the Russian Federation, federal laws or the international obligations of the Russian Federation/

State power in the Russian Federation is exercised on the basis of its separation into legislative, executive and judicial branches. Each of them is balanced by the President.


The legislative power is vested in the Federal Assembly (the Parliament). It consists of two chambers: the Council of Federation (the upper chamber) and the State Duma (the lower chamber). The two chambers of the Federal Assembly possess different powers and responsibilities with the State Duma the more powerful. The Federation Council includes two representatives from each constituent entity of the Russian Federation, one from the representative and one from the executive bodies of the subject of the Federation.


The State Duma consists of 450 deputies and is elected for a term of 4 years. In December 2008 the term was extended to 5 years. Each chamber elects a chairman (the Speaker) to control the internal procedures of the chamber. The Federal Assembly is a permanently functioning body. The Federation Council and the State Duma sit separately. Their sessions are open (public). Each of the Houses forms committees and commissions and holds hearings on the appropriate issues. Bills may be initiated by the two chambers. But to become a law a bill must be approved by both chambers and signed by the President. The President may veto the bill.


The Executive power is exercised by the Government which consists of the Chairman of the Government (the Prime Minister), deputy chairmen and the federal ministers. The Prime Minister is appointed by the President with the consent of the State Duma. Should the selected candidate be rejected three times, the President appoints the Prime Minister himself, dissolves the State Duma and announces new elections. The Prime Minister proposes to the President his candidates to the offices of the Deputy Chairmen of the Russian Federation and federal ministers. The Government presents a draft budget to be discussed by the State Duma and it provides its implementation and realization of financial, credit and monetary policies. It carries out measures to ensure the legality, rights and freedoms of the citizens, to protect property, public order and combat crimes. It ensures state security and the realization of foreign policy. The Government ensures the implementation of a uniform state policy in the sphere of culture, science, education, social security, health and ecology.


Justice in the Russian Federation is treated as a special type of independent state activity. Accordingly, it is administered by courts of law unified within a single judicial system which functions separately from other state systems. The aim of justice in Russia is to safeguard both the citizens’ rights and interests as well as those of the state and of individual institutions, enterprises and organizations. Judicial power is effected by means of constitutional, civil, administrative and criminal judicial proceedings. Judges are independent and subject only to the Constitution of the Russian Federation and federal law.
