Russia’s crisis recovery and the transition to a new industrialization model and a regime of sustainable development require new approaches in national, regional, and urban development. In the solution of this complex task, an important role belongs to the cities with over a million people, which concentrate huge economic, intellectual, innovative, management, and other potentials. This turns them into the poles (or cores) of growth not only of the regional but also of the national economy. The purpose of this article is to examine trends in the retrospective change in the socioeconomic situation of the Ural macroregion and to assess the possibility of their increment into positive ones through the prism of the development of the Ural cities as the nuclei of the growth of Russia’s new economy on the way of a new industrialization.



The reported study was supported by Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR), research project No.18-010-00789A “Development of a methodological tool for the study of the economy of a new industrial city in the context of transformation of the spatial organization of economic activity”.
