An analysis of the 2013 Annual Report on Changes in the Federal Property Register Associated with Origin and Termination of Right of Ownership to Immovable and Movable Property Held by the Russian Federation has led to the following conclusions. On the whole over the 5-year period under consideration, the number of properties received by the Russian Federation was more than 5 times higher than the number of properties disposed of over the same period of time, while the disposal index of economic societies with state stakes was only approximately 1.6 times higher than the corresponding receipt index. It can be assumed that these results reflect, on the one hand, the ongoing privatization process that involves, first of all, the disposal of assets prepared for sale (in the form of state-owned blocks of shares); on the other, they point to the redistribution of ownership rights between different tiers of public authority (a process that has been underway for nearly 10 years).
