The constitutional and legal status of subjects of various federations is the issue considered by many scientists, but the area of comparative legal research remains poorly studied. The article considers the basics and features of the constitutional and legal status of the subjects of two federations that are at the stage of formation as democratic and legal states: the Russian Federation and the Federal Republic of Iraq. The purpose of the comparative study is to identify common and different elements of the constitutional and legal status of the subjects of two states and to identify on their basis a model of the constitutional and legal status of a subject of a modern, democratic, and rule-of-law state. The work is based on the comparative-legal research method. The study reveals differences in the ways of achieving the goal of building a federal state in the Russian Federation and in the Republic of Iraq. It also determines the foundations and features of the constitutional and legal status of the subjects of the two federations. The analysis of the main constitutional and legal norms establishing the procedure for the division of powers between federal and regional state authorities is carried out. The study results allow concluding that it is necessary to amend the constitutional legislation of the Republic of Iraq in order to expand the constitutional and legal status of the subjects and improve federal relations within the country.
