Abstract. After the end of USSR, the new Russia    contradicted the old model of Soviet socialist state, announced in her Constitution that it will be a social state and after this has been trying to build the social state. The main object of this article is to analyze some quantitative and qualitative indicators, to compare them with similar indicators in the previously existing models of social states and to analyze the Russian’s differences like the social state, which can be described like The Russian’s model of social state. The article will give analyze of history of this question, will prove the actuality of this problem. From the 1990 to the 2000 there was a global extermination all spheres of life in Russia. On the other hand there was the creation of formal base for protection of base human rights too. Authors will show the results of this formal base and it’s own practical results in present, explain the results of our socio-economic policy, implementation of our National projects and May’s order of Russian president. Base on the official data we will consider that our level of social state is not as high as it is in some modern countries, for example in the medicine or education, in the employer and employee relationships, and social stratification. Russia is creating her own model of social state, in which the main idea for the government’s social policy is to make a minimal supporting for the most vulnerable stratums, but it is not to make good conditions for the growing of human capital. Authors considered that Russia is on the start level of building the new type of state, the future of this depends on improving our government’s system and changing our mental qualities.

Keywords: social state, human rights, education, healthcare, labor rights, the Swedish model of the social state.
