Today’s integration is characterized by creation of territorial educations, signing and implementation of inter-regional agreements with other states. So the development of cross-border cooperation and various contacts outside the state is observed. It is important to study of integration processes and influence of border on its further development especially in such questions as economy, policy, culture and social development.
