Abstract: The article is devoted to the study of the legal basis of the state sovereignty of Russia. This article is aimed at determining the meaning of state sovereignty, recognizing the essence, significance, and directions of its development in the Russian Federation in the globalization conditions. This scientific study was conducted on a step-by-step basis. First, the theme of the study was determined, its relevance was justified. Further, the purpose and objectives of the study were defined. The search and study of scientific literature on this issue were conducted. Then, the choice of research methods and their justification were carried out. Both general scientific and specific scientific methods of cognition were used. The general scientific methods used in the study include induction, deduction and system analysis. Analytical, statistical, system-structural, and formal-legal methods were applied among the specific scientific methods of cognition. Further, the data on the studied problem were obtained, processed and analyzed. As a result, it is concluded that the Constitution of the Russian Federation does not provide for the possibility of sharing Russia’s sovereignty with other states or international associations. The indivisibility of state sovereignty between the Russian Federation and the constituent entities of the Russian Federation is established. Internal political factors ensuring the integrity and inviolability of the territory of the Russian Federation are revealed. The form of manifestation of foreign policy influence on the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation is determined. State sovereignty is a sign of an independent state and the study of its significance, essence, and direction of development is an important condition for the national and state security of the country. The findings of this study can be used as a basis for further research in the field of state sovereignty and the process of globalization. Also, these conclusions can be used in the process of formation of state policy by the subjects of the state strategy. The scientific novelty of the research is that the authors on the basis of a wide range of sources comprehensively investigated the legal basis of state sovereignty of the Russian Federation. Some aspects of this legal framework are considered for the first time. For example, as a result of the study of the territorial prevalence of state sovereignty in the territory of Russia, the cause-and-effect link was established between the absence of the right of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation to secede from the Russian Federation and the specifics of federal legislation regulating these issues. It was also determined that in the event of a threat to state sovereignty from the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, there are opportunities for its elimination at the level of federal legislation.
