The article deals with migration issues in the border regions of Siberia and the Far East. It was found that the main factor in the decline in the population in these regions was the domestic migration outflow of the population, mainly to the central and southern regions of Russia. It was revealed that international labor migration as a whole has a positive impact on the economy of the border regions. Based on the system of statistical indicators, the index of migration attractiveness of the border regions of Siberia and the Far East was calculated. According to the migration statistics, indices of migration substitution depth were calculated in the regions under consideration.
This article identifi es the degree of comparability of the institution and bodies of the European Union on the one hand, and the Customs Union and the Common Economic Space of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia on the other. Institutional correspondence within the European and Eurasian integration is identifi ed which is further analysed on the functional basis. The analysis shows that despite certain institutional similarity, functional effectiveness varies considerably. The capacity to act of the bodies within Eurasian integration in comparison with the European Union is limited and depends considerably on the will of the leaders of the member states.
