The concept of «sovereignty» is taken to be interpreted as a property of state power to be independent of any other authority, both within the state and outside it, i.e. have absolute legal supremacy. In essence, the sovereignty of the state is the sovereignty of its elite, the so-called political class that controls ownership of natural resources, capital and a system of bureaucratic management. It is important to bear in mind that recognizing the generally recognized principles and norms of international law and international treaties as an integral part of the legal system of the Russian Federation, the Constitution of the Russian Federation, as well as federal legislation and legislation of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, does not disclose the notion of a legal system that is ambiguously defined in the scientific world. States have the right, in accordance with the principle of not interfering in the internal affairs of the state, independently, without outside interference and any pressure, to establish their political, economic systems, dispose of natural resources, develop them independently or concessionally, impose taxes and other charges, establish customs rules, regime of stay of foreigners on its territory.
