We present the analysis of the behavior of interacting fermions near the Stoner instability in a Fermi liquid. We show that the Landau damping of the spin susceptibility is a relevant perturbation near the quantum critical point, and it gives rise to the effective locality of the problem fermionic self-energy near the transition strongly depends on frequency, but weakly depends on momentum. We discuss how Fermi liquid behavior gradually disappears near the transition in D  <= 3, and present the results for the fermionic self-energy at the critical point.
