Abstract: Rural areas play an important role in the socio-economic processes of the country. Their uneven development in Russia is one of the key problems in the state strategy. The remoteness and expansiveness of rural areas can and should be balanced by their integration into the digital economy, which provides for a single information and communication space. Digital rural areas are primarily covered by the entire territory by the Internet, which is already a powerful resource for obtaining state, educational, medical services, and the ability to conduct electronic commerce for villagers. This removes the main social problems of their accessibility. To this end, it is necessary to determine the essence of sustainable rural development in conditions of digitalization, the basic principles of sustainable development, to formulate the main necessary components of the content of the concept of "sustainable rural development" from the point of view of the development of the information and communication structure and their integration into the global digital landscape. This approach makes it possible to diversify economic activities in rural areas, an additional impetus to achieve economic prosperity and, at the same time, preserve the natural and climatic balance. Also, using digital technology residents get the opportunity to carry out activities that are not related to agriculture, thereby increasing the social significance and attractiveness of the territories.
