Subject. This article deals with the issues related to the methodology and implementation of Russia's national security.
Objectives. Based on the analysis of the essence of economic security, the article aims to identify ways and formulate proposals for improving the research methodology and enhancing the effectiveness of Russia's security implementation.
Methods. For the study, we used the empirical, dialectical, systems, analytical, historical, and statistical approaches.
Results. The article defines the main methodological approaches to the consideration of the country's security and the problematic features of the official security strategy of Russia. It justifies human security as the key link of the country's security and provides recommendations on methodology and effective solution of problems of implementing Russia's economic security.
Conclusions and Relevance. The population of the country takes the major load in financing Russia's security. Monopolized corporations benefit from the price mechanism of redistribution of monetary resources. This situation worsens the financial well-being of the majority of citizens. This leads to an aggravation of socio-economic contradictions of society with inevitable negative consequences. It is necessary to radically change the methodological approach to the formation of the principles of the regulator's economic policy, taking into account the interests of mass entrepreneurship and the material capabilities of the majority of the population of Russia. The results of the study can be used when developing and implementing economic policy in the field of security, financial management of the population, business and government agencies, as well as in the systems of secondary-level and vocational education of the country.
