According to the authors, the issues of rural development in the context of the spread of a new coronavirus infection deserve special attention, since the solution to the global problem of food security largely depends on the level and quality of life in rural areas, which undoubtedly emphasizes the relevance of the study in this field. Based on the study of state programs, official statistics, opinions of foreign and domestic scientists, the authors formulate the main problems of the development of Russian rural settlements in the context of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, it was decided to distinguish the problems that had previously formed in the conditions of the traditional environment and the problems that were formed under the influence of the pandemic in the conditions of a unique environment. The identified difficulties served as the basis for determining the positive and negative consequences of the new coronavirus infection on the functioning of the study object. The final stage of the study outlines the main prospects for the development of rural territories of the Russian Federation in a new external environment. The authors believe that the topic under consideration requires continued experience in this field, since the situation develops, conditions become more complicated, problems, and hence the consequences and prospects are constantly transformed.
