Nowadays, one of the most important strategies of regional policy is ensuring spatial development of the Russian Federation’s subjects. The chosen topic appears to be extremely relevant because of the increasing level of spatial differentiation of the regions. Such differentiation is viewed as a barrier to the development of uniform economic, social, political, cultural, institutional, and information Russia’s space and can lead to economic stagnation, destabilization of territory integrity, national and economic security of the country. The aim of this research is to analyze the provisions of the first version of the Concept of the Russian Federation Spatial Development Strategy for the period till 2030. The authors considered theoretical and methodological basics of the spatial development, stages of development of strategic planning in Russia; studied the documents of strategic planning; analyzed the problems and main ways to improve the strategic management system of Russia’s spatial development. The authors conclude that there is a need to develop a full system of the concepts used in the Concept and to take into account the additional indicators reflecting the implementation of the spatial development strategy such as corruption level, size of shadow economy, competitiveness index, sustainable development index, level of investment potential, and investment risks, etc.
