Abstract: The article presents the results of cluster analysis of thirty-six border regions of the Russian Federation divided into six border areas: the Far Eastern, Mongolian, Kazakhstan, Caucasian, Ukraine-Belarusian and European. The analysis used 14 indicators in terms of socio-economic development, divided into two groups: economic and social. The first group includes 10 economic indicators, and the second 4 main social indicators, reflecting the level and quality of life of the population of the region. As a result of the analysis of indicators of the level of socio-economic development, a taxonomic dendrogram of 36 border regions of Russia was obtained. It was revealed that the most developed in terms of socio-economic development border regions correspond to the Kazakh and European border areas, while the less developed correspond to the Mongolian and Caucasian zones. A significant factors in the development of the Kazakhstan border zone is a developed transport infrastructure, created in Soviet times and the membership of neighboring countries in the Customs Union. And the development of the European zone is determined by the development of the adjacent territories of our country. The border regions of the Siberian Federal District are heterogeneous and dispersed in different taxa from the developed Novosibirsk region to the deeply depressed republics of Altai and Tuva. All subjects of the border area of the Siberian Federal District except the Tuva Republic, Trans-Baikal Territory and partly of the Altai Republic belong to the Kazakhstan zone. Mongolia for the Republics of Altai and Tuva is an obstacle to the diffusion of economic activity between China and the Siberian Federal District of Russia. One of the strategic directions of development of Tuva is the development of transport infrastructure with direct access to Chinese markets through Mongolia.
