The practice of dacha subdivision, and garden plot allotment in particular, spread widely during Soviet times, not only within the Russian Federation, but also to other Soviet Republics and even other socialist countries. While in the environs of the many-socialist cities, second homes are actively included into the real estate market and housing supply, Moscow’s suburbs demonstrate their loyalty to the established tradition of seasonal migration between the city and the countryside. This study seeks to address the question how do the shifting from socialist to market economy impact the dacha life-style of the Muscovites and to look into dynamics of the changes in the relations between the city and hinterland since the collapse of the socialist state from dachas’ point of view.
The main instrument of planning and formation of ecological network in the Moscow region should be geo-information system (GIS) allowing us to receive, organize, update, and process huge volumes of information at effective real-time. GIS systems together with the database will enable to track the most valuable natural territories and keep track of their biodiversity and analyze real-time processes that take place in these areas. The results of these studies should identify the main elements of ecological network - the "core area", "transit territory", "buffer zones", as well as serve as a basis to establish the legal status of the above-mentioned territories.
Obtained results will be used in updating the Master Plan of Moscow in its new borders and need to ensure rational development of the annexed territories.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
