The relevance of the study arises from a significant number of challenges in terms of the Russian countryside development caused by insufficient attention to the state of mentality and spirituality of rural residents as the most resistant to environmental factors representatives of traditional folk culture and by the underutilized opportunities of internal development resources, especially, ethnic reproduction and cultural potential. Taking into account the diversity of the regional differences in a significant area of the Russian Federation, it seems appropriate to identify and compare some regional models. Using the example of the Republic of Tatarstan, the authors analyze the ethnic aspects of the rural settlements, their occurrence and dynamics as the main condition for the development of historical and cultural (ethno-cultural) landscapes. The ethno-cultural component, in its turn, is considered as a factor in the sustainable development of rural settlements and requires thoughtful attention to it to provide the optimal use of its resources. This problem statement and its solution are absent in regulatory documents and are not sufficiently represented in the literature. To conduct the research, we used the data taken from the official statistics, specialized reference books, and field materials obtained by the authors during some ethnographic expeditions in the Republic of Tatarstan in 2015–2019. The obtained results allow determining the trends of a number of ethno-demographic processes in the Republic of Tatarstan and moving to a higher level enabling to run a study on the ethno-cultural landscapes of the rural settlements and construct their initial models.
