Abstract:

The instability of the world order and the increasing US sanctions against Russia require state authorities and civil society institutions (including the human sciences) to constantly consider and analyze internal threats to national security and to develop a system of measures to overcome them.

This article a) describes and systematically analyzes the causes of the main internal threats of national Russia, which were not adequately reflected in the National Strategy of the Russian Federation; and b) proposes a set of measures to change the socio-economic and political course and to ensure the state of protection of an individual, society and the state.

The author highlights the need to dismantle the neoliberal model of development of the country and the need for the transition to a social democratic model. He also formulates recommendations for improving welfare, education, and comprehensive human development. In the end, he raises the question of developing a scientifically based model of selection and public control of highest state bureaucracy, ensuring its professionalism, constitutional reform, as key internal factors for strengthening national security.
