    Research topic: Porto-Franco Regime in the Far East of the Russian Empire From the Middle of the 19th to the Beginning of the 20th Century as a Factor of Regional Identity Formation.

    «Far Eastern porto-franco regime was an issue of combative debates in the Russian Empire in late 19 th  – beginning of 20 th  century, taking part in the formation of the discourse about the divergence of the center and periphery interests. Moreover, porto-franco regime contributed to the creation of more cosmopolitan environment in the Russian Far East, provided the possibilities for the presence of the foreigners and foreign assets, influencing the central and regional, public and governmental points of view on the balance between the security and developmental issues. In this context porto-franco phenomenon left a significant imprint in the political and public life of the Russian society and supposedly proved to be a significant factor of regional identity formation in the Russian Far East».
