  • public contract
  • administrative boundaries
  • Russia’s constituent entities
  • The authors examine the constitutional doctrine of a public contract based on the example of agreements on changing the administrative-territorial boundaries of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. It is alleged that the theory and practice of such agreements at the present stage make it possible to reveal the essence and nature of a public contract as a legal and political instrument. The author comes to the conclusion that it is advisable to distinguish public contracts as a fixed normative category.
