Introduction

The new epoch of information society has broken the system of human ideas about borders of the states, democracies, freedom and equality existing earlier, it has created conditions for development of completely new attitudes among both people and states. The process of globalization has led us to the situation when civilized absorption of forever left behind countries by the most advanced ones has replaced military methods of problem solving between the states.

During a very short (in historical perspective) period a completely new, independent and effective network environment has appeared in leading countries having hierarchial govrement structures. The pyramid of bureaucracy began slowly immersing into the ocean of noosphere. And on the surface of this ocean came into life a network community which, continuously establishing horizontal communications between people, is capable of influencing all processes taking place in society.

Unfortunately, this process hardly involves Russia. If the European countries have found a place in this new world and united, having created a unique system EU, the Russian state still continues to move along a way that had been planned centuries ago. In Russia representatives of the post-Soviet feudal and bureaucratic pyramid of power have gone on the next circle of senseless movement into nowhere.

Today the development of information technologies is changeing the political system not only inside the states, but also the relationships between them. First of all, it concerns intellectual and political interaction between adjacent regions - Northwest federal district and the countries of the Western Europe. Having created federal districts the president of Russia has changed the structure of management on the federal level and, obviously unwillingly, has drawn the attention of the society to the problem of federalism and confederacy.

However something more important has taken place something that the most far-sighted scientists, politicians and analysts have already spoken about. Some new sofar virtual megaregion has appeared in the North-East of Europe which ignoring all borders is turning into a network filled with horizontal interactions between intellectuals, scientists and analysts from both sides. In information society people do not need intermediaries for decision-making, information society puts an individual on an information level similar to the information level of the state. And today the major aspects of peoples life can be independent of borders and sovereignties. And it would be silly not to use this gift of civilization for the humanitarian purposes.
