We consider the border counties of the Russian southern regions of the Far East and Heilongjiang Province in China. The material on the natural-resource potential of the studied territories, their economic activities was collected and analyzed. In addition, the characteristic of the ecological situation of the territories, as well as some calculated indicators (according to the statistical information available) characterizing the ecological status and economic sufficiency of nature protection activity is given. The uneven economic development of the border territories of the regions of the Far East and Heilongjiang Province and, consequently, the unequal impact of the economic activities of the considered territories on the environment are revealed.

It is obvious that there are many factors that determine the further effective cooperation. The need for joint projects aimed at methodological development on the basis of a uniform reading of the rules of nature management and sanitary standards is pointed out. It is also extremely important for cross-border territories, in addition to economic joint projects, to formulate and implement joint projects for the protection of the environment and sustainable use of natural resources.

KeywordsRussia, China, frontier territories, regions of the Far East, production-natural relations, economic sufficiency of nature protection activity
