Socio-economic development and preservation of ecological environments are crucially reciprocal challenges to human growth. The main purpose of this study was to provide a comprehensive overview of the relationships between economic activity and the eco-environment in the Federation of Russia. If we characterize the current state of the Russian economy and social sphere, it would not be an exaggeration to say that the economy and social structure today clearly do not meet the criteria of environmental preservation. In the process of globalization, Russia is forced to develop economically in order to be competitive in the world arena. In addition, the constant social conflicts in society in the 90s were a kind of "lesson" of what the inconsistent steps of the government in the field of economic and social sphere management can lead to. However, in order to take any action today to improve the state of the Russian economy and improve the environmental considerations as well as the life of ordinary people, one should consider the current problems in these areas.
