The Russian Federation, like other countries of Eastern Europe, is undergoing a complicated period of transition from centralized to democratic methods of management. The main goal of this period is the transition to market relations within the entire national economy. Specifically, the goal of agricultural land reform is to convert the legal structure as it relates to land in order to create favorable conditions for competition among all forms of ownership.
