Chapter Summary

In the economic sphere, the liberalization of prices undertaken by the government of Egor Gaidar and the Russian 'young reformers' has unleashed hyperinflation, which in a matter of days devoured the life-savings of the Russian population. We can see that the process of preparation of the treaty bore all the hallmarks of the meticulousness and foresight so characteristic of Tatarstan and her leader, Mintimer Shaimiev. Federalism is, firstly, a particular philosophy, the main feature of which is the ability to value uniqueness and variety giving bigger potential for development in any country. Secondly, federalism is nothing other than the territorial carcass of democracy, as it is based on respect and support of political, cultural and ethnic pluralism of society. If Russia has chosen democracy, she has chosen federalism. Therefore, any 'curtailment' of federalism in multi-ethnic Russia is fraught with the curtailment of democracy.

Keywords: federalism; liberalization; Mintimer Shaimiev; Russia; Tatarstan
