Abstract It is too early to speak of suburbanisation processes in the city regions of Russia, although the statistical data is deceptive: (officially) population decline in Moscow - slight increase in population in the surrounding regions . However, the immigration comes from outside. The same is also true of other large cities. The most mani fest first signs of suburbanisation can be observed in the Moscow city agglomeration (in addition to the population settlement, the establishment of transport and logistics firms, specialist retailers and trade outlets), whereas similar manifestations have been barely registered in other large cities and especially in smaller cities. There is no population concentration from the large cities in the surrounding regions, rather only a concentration of the capital from the large city (second homes in the form of cottages and massive dachas). The population concentration in the surrounding regions is a result of immigration through domestic migration. The structural economic transformation in the cities of the surrounding regions will not be feasible in the short to medium term as a result of a lack of capital and unfavourable growth conditions (circumstances provided by the state). It is most likely to set in with the creation of the tertiary and quarterly sector, especially the companyorientated services sector.
