Introduction. The list of implementation indicators of the Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development of the Russian Federation was formed taking into account its key provisions, and monitoring their dynamics provides an opportunity to demonstrate how the objectives of scientific and technological development of the Russian Federation, progress in implementing the priorities of scientific and technological development, meeting the objectives of state policy in science and technology and overall results of the Strategy's implementation have been achieved. Achievement of the targets and the implementation indicators of the Strategy will contribute, among other things, to the achievement of national goals and strategic objectives for the development of the Russian Federation, listed in the Decree No. 474 of the President of the Russian Federation dated 21 July 2020 on ensuring the presence of the Russian Federation among the world's ten leading countries in research and development, particularly by creating an effective system of higher education. Monitoring Tools. Monitoring tools are formal logic methods such as classification, analysis, synthesis, deduction and induction. The monitoring was conducted on the basis of data from the statistical reporting forms of the Federal State Statistics Service 2-science, 4-innovation, 2-MP innovation, 1-technology as well as information from open sources. Results. Monitoring of the Strategy implementation indicators for 2017–2019, assessment of the dynamics and achievement of indicator scores at the end of the study period, identification of indicators with positive and negative trends and the factors affecting the achievement of target scores were carried out. A list of government measures for each assessment indicator is provided to achieve the targets for the planning period. Conclusion. The monitoring revealed the ambiguity in the interpretation of some indicators for assessing the implementation of the Strategy for Scientific and Technological Advancement of Russia. Recommendations are made to improve the methodology for calculating individual indicators. The research results are of practical importance and can be used to formulate the policy of scientific and technological advancement of the country.
