The Archive Fund of Russia includes more than 500 million files. They reflect the history of modern Russia, the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, as well as the history of the world. The documents of the state archive are a powerful resource for the political and economic development of the country.

Andrey Nikolenko, Director of the Department of the Documentation Support of Management and Archival Processing of OSG Records Management, Russia: «The President's decision reflects the overall importance of archives. This not only applies to the state but to companies too. Good management of company archives provides a valuable resource for the development of the company and gives it a competitive advantage. On the other hand, poor archive management can result in slowing of key departments, and even large fines».
