«Omsk group» in exile in Manchuria
Based on unpublished sources and emigrant memoirs, the work analyzes the issue of social adaptation to the
conditions of emigration in Manchuria by representatives of the «Omsk group», which consisted of former
members of the anti-Bolshevik Siberian governments during the Civil War. Based on the theory of social
adaptation and the anthropological approach, the article focuses on such aspects of the biography of this
category of figures as behavioral strategies, service on the Chinese Eastern Railway, and the choice of
citizenship. The study of the destiny of the “Omichi” in Harbin is necessary to present the activities of Russian
public and political figures after the Civil War, to understand the problems of emigration in Manchuria and the
peculiarities of the existence of the liberal intelligentsia.

The role of Religion during the Civil War in Russia
(on the example of processes in the Omsk and Pavlodar Diocese)
Based on the example of the Omsk and Pavlodar Diocese, the article analyzes the influence of religion on the
events of the Russian Revolution and the Civil War in Russia is analyzed. The religious factor is understood
as the processes of the influence of religion on the beginning, course and outcome of the Civil War, on the
activities of the opposing forces, political institutions and public opinion. The main thesis of this article is that
in the Russian Revolution and the Civil War in Russia, for the majority of the population, religion did not play
a consolidating pacifying role, but, on the contrary, became a factor in the disintegration of society and the
escalation of civil confrontation. To confirm the main thesis, the author considers three aspects of the influence
of the religion on the escalation of the Civil War in Russia. The first is the ideological conflict between the
forces of the revolution and religious confessions, which naturally led the Church to the anti-Bolshevik camp.
The second is conflicts between representatives of the clergy, caused by ideologically different views religious
and political topics and support of socialist revolution by part of the clergy. The third is the decline in the authority
of the Russian Orthodox Church as a social cultural institution among a significant part of the Orthodox
population and among the non-Orthodox, which opened the way for the spread of varied ideologies of
nationalism and socialism.
Keywords: religious factor, Russian Orthodox Church, Russian Revolution, Russian Civil War, Siberia, Omsk,
religious anthropology, Bishop Sylvester (Olshevsky).

The system of local self-government under government of A. V. Kolchak
(The Case of Perm province)
The article examines the problems of the development of the system of local selfgovernment bodies during
the establishment of power by A. V. Kolchak in the Perm province. The great interest of scientists in the history
of the Civil War made it possible to single out many problems that were not considered in Russian and foreign
historiography. It is important to study the activities of the zemstvo and city government in new conditions. This
became the goal of this study. During the revolution, the system of local self-government was subjected to
significant changes, was actively involved in the political life of the country. However, in 1919, under A. V. Kolchak
no longer played a big role in the political life of the zemstvo. In the Perm province, self-government was supposed
to work in a frontline situation. With this in mind, the direction of development was only indicated, but in the summer
of 1919, with the arrival of the Bolsheviks, the zemstvo was finally liquidated.
Keywords: Civil War, White Army, local government, zemstvo, city councils, vowels, Perm province.

Altai provincial Union of war crippled (1918–1920)
The development of charity in Russia is increasingly reflected in contemporary Russian historiography. The
military-revolutionary period of 1914–1920, associated with large-scale social cataclysms, in this respect it is
especially relevant. The study of regional specifics is important for the disclosure of the problem. The purpose
of the study is to reveal, using the example of the Altai provincial of war crippled (AlthrovUC), the peculiarities
of the formation and activity of public associations under the conditions of the Russian Civil War in Siberia that
provided support to disabled people of the First World War (training, employment, social care and adaptation,
etc.). The source base of the work is the unpublished sources from the collections of the State Archives of the
Altai Territory and materials of the West Siberian press, which are first introduced into scientific circulation. The
anthropological approach and the theory of social adaptation became the methodological basis of the work. The
author concludes that, despite the difficult conditions of the Russian Civil War (general financial and social crisis)
AlthrovUC employees made a significant contribution to supporting the disabled of the First World War.

«Russia is being openly destroyed by satanic forces...»:
a memo from Archpriest Vladimir Vostokov to Metropolitan Anthony (Khrapovitsky)
In this publication, the reader is offered a note compiled by a well-known participant in the White Movement in the
South of Russia, Priest Vladimir Vostokov, in connection with the decision of the Supreme Church Administration
Abroad on August 19, 1922 to execute Decree No. 348 of His Holiness Patriarch Tikhon and the united presence
of the Holy Synod and the Supreme Church Council on the abolition of this very Administration. The decree
became a turning point in the history of the Russian Church Abroad in the direction of its separation from the
Moscow Patriarchate and the violation of its internal unity. In addition to discussing the decree, Father Vladimir
makes a lengthy digression into history, describing the events of the Russian Revolution and the Civil War,
assessing the leaders and participants of the White Movement, inevitably touching on the Jewish question,
as well as the reasons for the defeat of the White Movement.

Is Justified True Belief Traditional Analysis of Knowledge?
The article makes a general argument against understanding the concept of knowledge as a justified true belief
(JTB) as a traditional. For this purpose, it analyzes the works of researchers who begin question the traditionality
of JTB. Their arguments are supplemented and placed in the context of a unified argument against the thesis of
traditionality. In addition, attempts to defend the status of JTB by describing this concept as intuitive or umbrella
term are criticized.

The history of Aristotelian society of the early period:
the genesis and preconditions for development
The study presents the early period of the history of the Aristotelian society on the basis of the theoretical
principles of network analysis by Randall Collins. The theoretical basis of network analysis has significant
heuristic capabilities and help to understand the process of development of the Aristotelian Society, which
has turned from a group of philosophy enthusiasts into a professional philosophical association. It is
emphasized that quantitative criteria of periodization are problematic because they do not take into account
the complex intellectual atmosphere in British philosophy of the late XIX–early XX century. The article
discusses popular historical and philosophical cliches that simplify the reflection of this period only as an
arena of rivalry between British idealists and analytical philosophers. The important role of Shadworth
Hodgson as the first president of the Aristotelian Society is also considered.
Keywords: philosophical societies, network analysis, analytic philosophy, British idealism, Hodgson’s philosophy.

Understanding and ad hoc Explanation: A Case of Russell’s Reducibility Axiom
The article examines the common interpretation of the axiom of reducibility in Principia Mathematica according
to which the axiom cannot be considered as logical, which casts doubt on the success of the program of
logicism. In particular, the ad hoc character attributed to the reducibility axiom is refuted and its explanatory
role in substantiating Russell’s uniform approach to resolving set-theoretic and semantic paradoxes is
affirmed. The key emphasis in the explanatory nature of the axiom of reducibility is placed on the intensional
interpretation of mathematical discourse.
Keywords: branched type theory, axiom of reducibility, explanatory scheme, understanding,
intensionality of mathematics.

Monitoring the interaction of production structures
The article is devoted to the development of methodological tools for tracking the parameters of interaction
of production structures in the industrial sector of the economy. A system of monitoring the interaction of
production structures is proposed, consisting of 3 main stages and including the object, subject, subjects,
methods and means of monitoring the process of interaction of production structures. The principles of building
an interaction monitoring system are formulated. The developed interaction monitoring system involves the
collection and analysis of information about the parameters of interacting production entities selected for
observation. Observation as the most important stage of the system of monitoring the interaction of production
structures is proposed to be carried out through the use of such methods of collecting information and
processing results as analysis of freely available materials, expert survey, questionnaire, statistical accounting,
calculation method. The results of the evaluation of the interaction of production structures determined within
the framework of the corresponding stage of the monitoring system are studied as fundamental in the
implementation of regulatory measures by the interacting structures in terms of specifying regulatory and
technical and technological requirements for its participants.
Keywords: interaction, monitoring, system, observed parameters, production structures.

The analysis of efficiency of risk-based approach in supervision activities
of Federal Tax Service in the system of state financial monitoring
The article examines the issues of risk-oriented supervision in the activities of the Federal Tax Service,
which is an integral part of the state financial monitoring of Russia. Modern practice shows that the increased
pressure of tax services on taxpayers causes the growth of the «shadow sector» in the economy, at the expense
of small and medium-sized enterprises experiencing uncertainty before the supervisory authorities. The strategy
of increasing the number of office and field audits has little effect in motivating tax payments. Taxes are an integral
institutional element of a market economy, which is both an economic and a legal category. The economic
content of taxes consists in the redistribution of the gross national product and reflects the relationship to
mobilize part of the income that is formed in the private sector at the disposal of the state. As a result, tax
evasion, which is one of the predicate crimes, by organizations causes the growth of the shadow economy and
contributes to the processes of money laundering. In this regard, the tasks of justifying the need to modernize the
risk management system when implementing tax control in Russia and analyzing the introduction of a modern
risk-based approach to tax supervision in order to stabilize the country’s financial system are very relevant.
The purpose of the article is to formulate conclusions on the effectiveness of the application of the risk-based
approach in the supervisory activities of the Federal Tax Service.
Keywords: risk-oriented supervision, Federal Tax Service, financial monitoring, tax revenues, taxpayer risk,

Conjunctural fluctuations in the Russian economy
The article is devoted to the study of macroeconomic trends in 2020-2021 in Russia. The relevance of the
problem is connected with the need to determine the nature of conjunctural fluctuations of macro indicators.
Russia’s GDP in 2020 showed a decrease of 3,1 %, in 2021 it is expected to grow by 4,5 %. The crisis of 2020
was reflected in the disruption of reproductive chains and affected the level of production of certain economic
sectors. Economic growth in 2021 had a restorative character. It appeared in the form of a revival of consumer
demand and the resumption of production growth in the industries affected by the coronacrisis. The purpose of
the study is to analyze the main macroeconomic indicators in the conditions of the coronavirus pandemic, to
determine trends and patterns of economic development. The article uses methods of formal and meaningful
analysis of statistical information. The present study shows that the conjunctural fluctuations of the economy
are based on internal and external factors that stimulate and restrain economic growth. The trigger for the
uneven development of the economy was a natural cataclysm in the form of a coronavirus pandemic.
Keywords: gross domestic product, coronavirus pandemic, inflation, consumer price index, macroeconomic
demand, monetary policy, key rate, money supply, fiscal policy.

Motivation of agricultural workers: mechanism, features and
directions of development
The effective activity of the enterprise is determined not only by advanced technologies, but also by the desire
of employees to achieve high results. The formed mechanism of motivation of agricultural workers should
contribute to increasing the productivity of workers. However, as practice shows, it does not give the proper
result. The mechanism of motivation of workers engaged in agriculture has not been worked out in the
specialized literature. The article presents an interpretation of the concept of «motivation» taking into account
the peculiarities of agriculture. The causal relationship between motivation and motivational development of
personnel is considered. The mechanism of motivation of agricultural workers has been developed on the
example of an operating enterprise.
Keywords: motivation, labor motivation mechanism, agriculture, stimulation of labor activity.

Features of business education in context of development
of youth entrepreneurship
The development of the youth entrepreneurship sector contributes to an increase in youth employment,

inherent in young people, a number of negative factors persist, for example, a lack of material resources
and experience, lack or insufficient availability of business contacts and knowledge in the field of business.
The peculiarity of young people, as a potential business entity, lies in their sensitivity to such a form of
support as business education. The article presents the results of a study of the characteristics of business
education in the context of the development of youth entrepreneurship. The author suggests the term
«business advise», analyzes its impact on youth. The research is based on general scientific
methods of classification, generalization, comparison, analysis.
