Annotation

After the end of the Russo-Japanese war, Japanese merchants speeded up the illegal delivery of convenience goods, foods and alcohol in the territory of the Russian Far East. Local residents readily changed fur skins and marine products for the goods offered by Japanese merchants. Such an activity of Japanese subjects did considerable damage to the economic interests of Russia. This paper focuses on analysis of the reasons, which determined this non-equivalent exchange. The author also considers the major measures taken by the Russian Government in order to prevent this harmful economic activity.

        Key words: Russia, Japan, fur skins, customs tariffs, Pacific fishery, enterprise supervision, navigation certificate, smuggling, trade.
