Resume
An attempt is been made to present the structure of the Donbass reintegration strategy in the form of three interrelated processes: the development of controlled territories, the settlement of the armed conflict and the reintegration of certain regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions. The stages of these processes are determined, interconnected by the logic of a politico-diplomatic settlement of the armed conflict in the Donbass. In the article is been proposed the structuring of the controlled territories of Donbass into four subregions, which differ in the specificity of their own development problems. According to the logical sequence and content of the implementation of the stages, each of them is determined by a list of acute problems, tasks and the results of their solution in order to socio-economic development of the region and improve the humanitarian living conditions of its residents. The principle of the formation of options for fulfilling the tasks of the stages should been taken into account in developing scenarios of the Donbass reintegration process is shown. The adoption of the proposed approach by the developers of the State Strategy for the Reintegration of Donbass would help to determine the tasks of immediate structural and economic transformations that are relevant already at the existing stage of the armed conflict. Certain acute nodes of the structural and economic problems of the controlled territory of Donbass can been used as proposals for the terms of reference for the development of the state strategies for the economic recovery of controlled territories and the reintegration of Donbass as a whole.
