21 The last two years have seen a breakthrough in the adoption of relevant strategic planning documents in the energy sector. On May 13, 2019, the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation approved the Doctrine of Energy Security of the Russian Federation. On April 16, 2020, the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation “On Development of Equipment, Technologies and Scientific Research in Nuclear Power Use in the Russian Federation” was signed. On June 9, 2020, the Government of the Russian Federation approved the Energy Strategy of the Russian Federation for the period of up to 2035. On June 13, 2020, the Government of the Russian Federation approved the Program for the Development of the Russian Coal Industry for the period of up to 2035. Strategic objectives of the FEC development need proper legal support. Energy laws has seen quite active development in recent years, however, there are also gaps and problems that need to be worked out in order to establish the most optimal models of legal regulation. In this regard, it is extremely important to have a discussion between representatives of the state, science, business, and public organizations in order to develop proposals that balance the interests of various participants of the energy markets.
