Aim. The presented study analyzes the economic and legal relations of trade turnover between Russia and the EEU member countries in the context of economic sanctions.
Methods. The methodological basis of this study comprises the current advances in the theory of cognition, methods of the evolutionary-institutional theory, econometric modeling, and analytical assessment. The presented study also uses the general philosophical method, systems method, analysis, synthesis, analogy, deduction, empirical methods (observation, comparison, data collection, and examination), routine and prospective analysis, and synthesis of theoretical and practical materials. This study analyzes the sources of the supranational and national law governing foreign trade and statistical accounting for the major export and import indicators in the EEU member countries and Russian foreign trade.
Results. The results of the study can be used by Russian and EEU regulatory bodies for solving the existing problems in the foreign trade management system. The developed proposals and mechanisms for the efficient regulation of major problems and inconsistencies in the integration of Russia’s socioeconomic development with other EEU countries in an unstable environment can be used for maintaining and enhancing the competitive advantages of national economies and the EEU as a whole.
Conclusion. The main conclusions to be drawn from this study are the developed conceptual approaches to supranational regulation of foreign trade in the EEU. The study emphasizes the importance of improving the regulatory management of the foreign trade activity of the EEU countries, considering globalization and harmonization based on international rules, including those of the World Trade Organization. The originality of the study lies in the substantiation of the need for harmonization of the EEU customs legislation and consistent organization of the international, supranational, and national levels of regulatory management, including customs and tax rules of foreign trade.

Keywords: trade turnover, foreign trade activity, World Trade Organization, Eurasian Economic Commission, Eurasian Economic Union, hierarchy of legal regulation sources, regulatory management, customs legislation, customs union
