The Disintegration of the Judiciary Within Eurasian Integration
The Eurasian Economic Union (‘EAEU’) – an international organization for regional economic integration in post-Soviet space – has a judicial body aimed at ensuring uniform application of law. This article argues that the EAEU Court will struggle in achieving its aim as there are issues of independence, it has diminished powers, and limits have been imposed on its interpretative practices, at least as compared to its predecessor. This may lead to problems in respecting the rule of law and ‘dis-integrates’ the judiciary in the sense of a common system involving national courts. At the same time, it is also argued that, although the Court’s procedural and substantive powers have been limited, the attempt to limit certain interpretative powers of the Court can hardly result in meaningful consequences for the development of law.

Russia’s entire history is in its geography and no matter how huge its territory, it is still a kind of an “inbetween” space. Today’s Russia has all but completed its turn toward Asia. However, it remains to be seen how far-reaching and successful it will be, and in what specific areas it will evolve and what will be its content, benefits, and costs. Russia, remaining the country of the European civilization, is moving in the new world to a natural status of the great Eurasian Atlantic-Pacific power. The turn means not a "reversal" from Europe, but a pragmatic orientation to new opportunities, the adequate desire to fit with the modern world. Main directions and dimensions of such turn refer to the establishment of new internal conditions (organizational and legal) for the accelerated development of Siberia and the Far East, qualitative strengthening of the Russian presence in the Asia-Pacific region, and the gradual build-up of trade, economic and political ties with Asian countries, formation of the new Eurasian space for common development.
This article analyses international legal regime of shared water resources by the states of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and justifies the approach, according to which the common policy in the sphere of protection and exploitation of shares water resources is necessary. EAEU member states have concluded several agreements aimed at protection and establishing regime of exploitation of shared water resources. However most of the provisions of these agreements need to be further specified, harmonized and codified. The author comes to the conclusion that the system when firstly the framework rules are adopted and further special rules are created to supplement such framework rules is appropriate to regulate relations in the sphere of protection and exploitation of shared water resources. It is suggested to foresee the special chapter in the Treaty on EAEU, containing common principles of protection and exploitation of shared natural resources of the EAEU.
The paper deals with birth rate among labor migrants from two countries, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, in Russia. The study is based on an online survey of women migrants from those countries, held in 2018. It is argued that differences in regulation of stay of labor migrants from the two countries in Russia which emerged after Kyrgyzstan had joined the Eurasian Economic Union in 2015, didn’t have a significant effect upon birth rate so far, contrary to expectations. Possible explanation of this is suggested. The results of analysis also are considered against the background of key hypotheses about migration-to-birth-rate relation, currently present in demography.
The article is devoted to a particular form of freedom of assembly — the right to counter-demonstrate. The author underlines the value of this right as an element of democratic society, but also acknowledges the risk of violent actions among participants of opposing demonstrations.
