Abstract

265 THE PRIVATIZATION OF STATE ENTERPRISES IN RUSSIA VLADIMIR K. ANDREEV Senior Scholar of the Institute of State and Law of the Russian Federation Academy of Sciences, Moscow The Russian economy is undergoing a deep and multi-faceted crisis. This has been brought about primarily by a transformation of property rela- tionships - the bases of any socio-economic and political structure. In the past, state property has ruled uninterrupted in Russia, the legal signifi- cance of which has resulted in a bureaucratic model of the content and exercise of the right of ownership when "the state as a single and the only owner of the entire fund of state socialist property not only organizes the process of the expansion of socialist production but also enjoys the same through its economic/operational agencies".' The constitutional nature of state property as all-people's, as the common wealth of all the Soviet people, only served as an ideological gloss to distance a rank and file worker from the means of production and the output thereof. Kolkhoz-cooperative ownership - characterized in the Constitution of the former USSR as one of the forms ofthe economic system of socialism - was legally a second form of ownership
