About the Russian Federation Court System: its current state and future development prospects.The author analyses the current state of the Russian Court System and its future development prospects in the article. A whole number of measures concerning the Court System development is proposed. These measures include: clear definition of «the Court System» notion; organization of the separate second instance Courts for magistrates in the regional centres; the domestic constitutional justice arrangement; inter-regional and district Courts creation. The legality of restrictive provisions of distribution agreements under Russian civil legislation is frequently disputed by lawyers. However treatment of these provisions as an example of negative obligations may be used as an argument for their validity. Moreover the answer to the question, whether such provisions should be found as restricting legal capacity of the parties to the agreement or not, depends on the level of certainty of these provisions in the agreement.
