Abstract

Russian Federation consists of 89 Federated units, namely republics, provinces (in Russian - krai), regions (in Russian - oblast), two federal cities (Moscow and Saint-Petersburg), autonomous region and autonomous districts. Federated units are divided in municipalities. Along with the Federal Constitution there are fundamental laws in Federated units (republics have constitutions, all other units have charters). Municipalities (the level of local government) have charters. Each level has its own system of government. And at each level a referendum might be held. Local government approved their regulations on local referenda. Regional laws on referendum and local government regulations on referendum should be consistent with these requirements of the federal law, and local regulation should not contradict both Federal and regional legislation. Therefore, if regional laws were adopted before the mentioned Federal Law entering into force, their parts contradicting with the Federal Law should be amended. In any case, only those provisions of regional laws and local regulations can be used and enforced that conforms to the Federal legislation.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
