Abstract

Statistical evidences that some transmission channels of «resource curse» operate in Russian economy at regional level are received. Incomes from export of power resources and gratuitous federal transfers play a role in increase of officialdom, in distortion of regional elite behavior, and also influence the level of poverty and inequality in the Russian regions.
