In the paper, I have examined the compliance with the goals of revitalizing the development of human capital of Russia, that are understood as overcoming obstacles to its development, targets that characterize the achievement of the national development goals of the Russian Federation defined in the Decree of the RF President. I have concluded that, in general, the degree of compliance with the goals of revitalizing human capital development in Russia to national goals is quite high. However, achieving a number of goals runs counter to the targets, or hinders short-term growth and contributes in the long-run. Special attention must be given to achieving goals that are relevant to each other. Conflicting goals should be agreed, if this is not possible, compromise solutions, parity of goals should be formed. When implementing measures that worsen targets in the short term and improve in the long term, one should consider maximizing the mitigation of the negative effect at the first stage.
