of the anthropological revolution of the XIX century and the Soviet cultural revolution is analyzed. The professional art associations of Siberia are shown as the ones which sensitively respond to Domestic
and Western European intellectual fashion trends and hobbies but at the same time being aware of their specificity of the community. The dynamics of artistic display about the natural, ethnic, social
and cultural, everyday features of the West Siberian region is reflected in the article. The creation of an encyclopedic image of Siberia being free fr om local stereotypes and auto-stereotypes, in conditions
of unification of themes and plots of the era of the Soviet cultural revolution is demonstrated.

of the administrativecommand system for a long time ensuring the existence and development of the Soviet state. Even after 30 years, it is difficult to determine what these events were:
the counter-revolution, the revolution, the Thermidorian upheaval.This situation is complicated by the differences in the interests of the political forces that took part in the collapse of the Soviet system
of government, as well as a change in the attitude of the participants in the events themselves to their past experience.

«Striking force of gun turrets» — to question of creating artillery weapons of Soviet armored vehicles in 1930’s
The article is devoted to the development of anti-tank and tank artillery in the USSR, Belgium, Britain, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, France, Italy in the Interbellum. This process is caused by the growth
of the tank fleet of the armed forces, which can significantly increase the pace of operations. In parallel, there is a qualitative development of armored vehicles, which becomes more resistant to armor-piercing
bullets of a rifle caliber and shell fragments, more mobile, which complicates the fight against regimental and division artillery, and makes the production of special anti-tank guns necessary. At the same time,
the qualitative growth of armored vehicles requires adequate armament of a compact, rapid-fire ammunition with a wide range of ammunition. Unfortunately, the study of this process is biased. Journalists,
politicians, researchers often disseminate allegations that in the USSR there was a copying of foreign samples. An example of such approaches is the distortion of the history of the development of Soviet
anti-tank and tank guns of the Interbellum. A comparison of the processes taking place in the USSR and abroad allows us to refute the opinion of the fundamental importance of copying foreign samples or using
Keywords: Soviet designers, tank guns, anti-tank guns, Interbellum, the defense industry, foreign experience.

The logic of «pure knowledge» and conceptual understanding of principle of causality in normativism
The paper is devoted to the analysis of the philosophical foundations of Hans Kelsen’s normativism, presented in the arguments of the Marburg school of neocantianism. With the help of the reconstruction
of the «logic of pure knowledge» by H. Cohen, the conceptual apparatus of normativism is reinterpreted. Special attention is paid to the conceptual analysis of the principle of causality in scientific knowledge,
the roots of which are found in ancient philosophical thought and mythology with the idea of retribution. As additional arguments for the legal methodology the arguments of the normativist theory are given,
justifying a methodological alternative to the search for cause-and-effect relationships in legal reality.
Keywords: normativism, legal norms, causality, retribution, mythology, ancient philosophy, Hans Kelsen.
Causality and Retribution / trans. from Engl. А. B. Didikin

and justifies the thesis that the origins of ideas about causality in nature should be found in ancient mythology and philosophy, wh ere the key reference point for the perception of nature and society was the principle
of retribution. On the basis of historical and philosophical reconstruction of the philosophical ideas of Heraclitus and Democritus Kelsen traces the evolution of the principle of causality to the present day,
including the emergence of new theories in the field of quantum mechanics and mathematics.
Keywords: causality, retribution, mythology, ancient philosophy, Hans Kelsen.

Living standards and income dynamics
Problem and purpose. The main problem of the modern Russian economy has been the declining dynamics of population incomes. Revenues determine the socioeconomic orientation of the economy
and are indicators of the standard of living of the population. These are key indicators of social welfare, which are a source of meeting diverse needs. The aim of the article is to study the main trends
in the indicators of living standards.
Methods. The research methodology is based on the analytical method. In particular, the incomes of the population are examined and the state of living standards of the population is estimated.
Results. In the course of the analysis, the dynamics of the average per capita cash income of the population (per month), the real disposable cash income of the population, the volume and structure
of the cash income of the population by source of income, the distribution of income, the dynamics of the living wage, and real wages are determined.
The analysis carried out in the article allows us to determine the degree of change in the standard of living of the population. In 2014–2015, there was a decrease in the standard of living of the population.
In 2016–2017, the economy is growing slowly. Conclusions. A stimulating income policy is needed to improve living standards. In particular, it is necessary to expand the expenditures of the state budget
to support poor citizens. Also, an increase in the living standard may become an instrument of income policy.
