Vladislav Savinykh Discussing Section 2 of Article 555 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation with Regard to Problems Related to Cadastral Value and the Principle of Ownership Unity
The article analyses rationale for section 2 of article 555 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, which states that the price of a building by default includes the price of the land beneath it. Based on the results of a price survey, the author argues that built-up areas are not circulable and do not have any individual market value. The author suggests that land which has not been assigned any individual price is excluded from the market since it is considered to form a single object of ownership with a building on it. The author concludes that the principle of ownership unity presents section 2 of Article 555 in a new light, proving that it is not merely a technical provision, but a clear evidence of an unbreakable legal bond between a building and the land beneath it. In addition the author examines the question of cadastral costs of a build-up land and discusses possibilities of its application.
Keywords: principle of ownership unity, value of developed land, object of circulation, cadastral value

Vadim Belov Problems of Business Inheritance
The article analyses some provisions of the Draft Law No. 801269-6 proposed to the State Duma by its member P.V. Krasheninnikov. The main focus of the article — the new provisions that shall add to the Russian Civil Code certain legal instruments to save a business after the death of the person who controls it (businessman, entrepreneur, oligarch). Although it is beyond any doubt that this idea is good, the author has mixed feelings about its realization in the Draft Law.
