International integration affects many sides of societal life, including the development of national legal systems. This article analyzes the regularities and algorithms of the mutual effect of national legal sys‌tems, which lead to the formation of unique compositions of various legal traditions. Special attention is paid to the influence of international law on the development of the legislative systems of individual countries. The author proposes ways of overcoming contradictions and gaps in the legal regulation of the multidimensional system of integration associations with the participation of the Russian Federation and substantiates conceptual approaches to the formation of the legal framework of the Eurasian Economic Union and subsidiary support for the union’s development within the legislations of the member states.
