Abstract. The article deals with issues related to the history of Russia’s entry into the Bologna process, the necessity and role of this historical phenomenon for the development of the Russian education system, the steps that need to be taken by the institution of national education on the occasion of its withdrawal from the European agreement. The authors note that criticism of the Bologna system and calls for its abolition have been heard for a long time – it was the same “eternal topic” on the educational agenda as dissatisfaction with the Unified State Examination and its rejection. But, as real practice showed, this was usually not taken seriously. These appeals did not immediately develop into decisive action. The authors of the article believe that Russia’s plan to abandon the so-called Bologna system of education arose long ago, but after the change in the geopolitical situation in connection with the outbreak of the armed conflict in Ukraine, such calls began to sound more and more active. Today, at the state level, the issues of abandoning the Bologna system are being resolved while maintaining the positive experience that the domestic system of vocational education has acquired over the past historical period. As a result of the study, the authors came to an understanding and conclusion regarding how important it is for Russia to follow its national interests and choose its own path of development. It seems that the educational system, first of all, should be aimed at serving the national interests of the country, its people and security.
