The well-developed legal and regulatory framework is compulsory for providing secure and effective nuclear activity in Russia.

Applications of this study: This research can be used for the universities, teachers, and students.

Novelty/Originality of this study: In this research, the model of the “International and intrastate regulation of the nuclear security of the Russian Federation” is presented in a comprehensive and complete manner.
