Abstract: Based on the empirical study of a key sector of the post-soviet economy, the metallurgy, this article analyses the mecanisms of the structural social shock that Russia has undergone from 1991 to 2002. We will first show that the birth of the capitalist oligarchy finds its origin in the predatory behaviors authorized by the modalities of the privatization, the disorganisation of industrial relationships and the brutal liberalization of international trade. This oligarchic domination is supported by corporatist forms of control of the branch. On the local and federal scale, we show the mecanisms of integration of the salarial relationship and the strong interpenetration of the economical and political powers. The concept of the export-rent productive model is eventually being developped to caracterize the situation of the branch at the beginning of this new century.
