Aim. To analyze the main results of the past decade in the sphere of national and religious relations in Russia, point out the most acute challenges and risks of their destabilization as well as to analyze the resources available for reinforcement of civil agreement in ethno-confessional sphere of Russia for the upcoming years.

Methodology. The article discusses the results of state national policy measures carried out in the previous 10 years. Using analytic and systematic approaches the authors define the main risks and challenges for national and religious agreement in the upcoming decade.

Results. According to the authors, the main risks that will determine the development of relations between nationalities are external incitement, threats of transit of conflicts, underestimation of problems that have remained unresolved since the Soviet period, public campaigns in 2021, and consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. The prevention of these risks is possible if bodies of authority, national and cultural public and religious organizations, and community of experts work together.

Research implications. The results of the research can be used for developing and endorsing long-term projects of implementing state national policy both on the federal level and within regions and municipal unities of Russia.

Key words

State national policy, Strategy of state national policy, interethnic relations, challenge, risk
