As the social and economic tasks facing any state become more complicated, the importance of human resource management increases, and the requirements for personnel policy increase. Its effectiveness is determined not only by the use of modern methods, but also by the application of traditional practices available to the state apparatus and to certain regional, national, and professional groups. In the Russian Federation there is a unique management experience of the Cossacks, which can be called personnel management. At present, this experience is in demand both by Cossack associations and the Russian state.

Prospects for Sweden and Finland to join NATO

The European security system has been in deep crisis for several years. NATO seized on the “Russian threat”, justifying its existence. Donald Trump, who declared the Alliance “an out-of-date” organization and scared the European allies well, in April 2017 changed the position and supported NATO. At the heart of the security crisis in Europe, which undermines its global competitiveness, lies the crisis of old thinking. The Euro-Atlantic community is sliding towards the stereotypes of the Cold War, instead of rethinking the future of Europe in a global world that has long grown out of the patterns of Eurocentrism. Obviously, NATO is trying to include Finland and Sweden in its orbit, however, Russia is looking for options to counter this. However, at the moment everything is going to the fact that Russia will have to strengthen the border with Finland.
Keywords: Russia, EU, USA, Finland, Sweden, NATO.
