The new Article 406.1 of the Civil Code introduces into Russian law a new approach which, in many legal systems, is similar to what is known as ”compensation”. Under this article, parties acting in the course of their activities may agree that one of them shall reimburse losses suffered by the other party in respect of certain matters defined in the treaty that are not related to an offence (for example. B losses resulting from the impossibility of performing an obligation, by actions of third parties or public authorities against the other party or by a third party referred to in the agreement), etc.). The amount of the refund or the procedure for fixing it is fixed in the contract between the parties. Some arbitration clauses are unenforceable and, in other cases, arbitration proceedings may not be sufficient to resolve a dispute. What is interesting is that an analogous formality, developed by the judiciary, has developed in some civil law systems, the disguised gift of French law, in which the parties make a promise of donation in the form of a painful transaction, such as . B a sale. It can be argued that both nominal considerations and disguised donation serve at least the functions of alerting and channelling the formalities mentioned above. A contract is a legally binding document between at least two parties that defines and governs the rights and obligations of the parties to an agreement.  A contract is legally enforceable because it meets the requirements and approval of the law.
A contract usually involves the exchange of goods, services, money or promises from one of them. ”breach” means that the law must give the victim access to remedies such as damages or annulment.  Trade agreements believe that the parties intend to be legally bound, unless the parties explicitly state otherwise as in a heads of agreement document. For example, in Rose & Frank Co v. JR Crompton & Bros Ltd, an agreement between two commercial parties was not obtained because an ”honour clause” in the document says, ”This is not a commercial or legal agreement, but only a declaration of the parties` intention.” Where a contract is based on an unlawful aim or is contrary to public policy, it is against the law. In the 1996 Canadian case Royal Bank of Canada v. Newell a woman forged her husband`s signature and her husband agreed to assume ”all responsibility and responsibility” for the forged checks. However, the agreement was not enforceable, as it was supposed to ”stifle prosecution” and the bank was forced to return payments made by the husband.
Each country recognized by national law has its own national legal system governing contracts. While contract law systems may have similarities, they may differ considerably. As a result, many contracts include a legal choice clause and a jurisdiction clause. . . .
