The statistical information on the quantity and volume of M&As in Russia and worldwide was used as an initial benchmark data for the research. The article deduces the conclusion that the dynamics of Russian M&A market development resembles the international one in the whole period up to the year 2014. Starting from 2014 Russian and international M&A markets shows polar trends. This fact connected chiefly to the negative trends in Russian economy due to economic sanctions and weak exportable raw products prices.
