Function of the capital in Russian urban system: problems of realization (Russia, Perm')
The article discusses specificities of the Russian urban system as compared to the countries of Eastern Europe and large developed and developing countries. Special attention is paid to the distribution of economic activity among the largest cities in Russia, including the disproportions between the capital and other large cities. The author analyzes a number of popular international ratings of cities and the place of Russias largest cities in them. With exception of Moscow, the urban system of the country is not sufficiently integrated into the global economy; a more balanced distribution of economic functions in the national urban system may increase competitiveness of the capital itself. The author concludes that the function of Moscow as the capital should be further developed for purposes of more intensive use of potential of other large cities in Russia
Key words: largest cities, citys competitiveness, function of the capital, economic function of a city
