Historyczne uwarunkowania regulacji małżeńskich stosunków majątkowych w prawie rosyjskim
Old Russian family law was based on system of separation of property between spo- uses. When Bolsheviks took power, they retained this system. They were claiming that separation of property between spouses is the best from the point of view of equality of husband and wife. The change was done in 1926, together with new Family Code. It im- posed the system of joint community in matrimony. The official explanation was that it’s the best system for women. In fact, this system was most of all convenient for Communist government, which planned huge industrialization of the country. Up till now, even after the fall of Communism, this system is retained.
