As a rule the United Nations (UN) is seen as an organization working on world wide security issues and performing humanitarian assistance therefore its economic activity stays underestimated. UN is a consumer of the vast amount of various services and goods. It prefers mid- and low-size companies, rather than giant multinational corporation and works with suppliers all over the world paying more attention to developing countries and countries with the transition economy. Today the UN is become more interested in Russia as a commercial partner. However Russian companies still do not sufficiently consider the benefits from the UN-Russia commercial partnership. When only insignificant part of Russian enterprises which activities are related to the provision of the peacekeeping operations is participating in this partnership, while other parts of Russian commercial industry do not use opportunities of the UN market, giving their benefits up for foreign rivals. The article provides the assessment of the most promising directions of international cooperation between Russia and the United Nations and can be useful for those whose interests are lying in contemporary analysis of the international organizations and institutions cooperation development.
