Key words: politology, science, subject, political thinking, the institutionalization of the subject of politology.

Hence the study of interethnic relations, working out categorical apparatus in investigation of these real processes is necessary as well as in theory and practice. The cognition of the main theoretical and methodological aspects of national, interethnic relations during post- Soviet period is peculiar for these researches. The researches are interested what ethno national and civil identity represent in conditions of transitional and post- transitional periods from socialistic public relations to a new political democracy.

DEVELOPMENT OF THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF THE STUDY OF IDENTITY AND IDENTIFICATION ISSUES

A lot of theoretical and methodological identity problems and identification processes in poly- ethnic societies are worked out by West scientists, especially by psychologists. They point out that identity gets its expression due to another identity that can contradict it and hence to dialogue with it in which there is not one but at least two ways; from and to yourself. As a result they came to the following conclusion concerning identity:

– expression of its belonging to a world which is given the status of existence and that is the condition of continuing and restating the life;

– foundation for communicating and discussing where the essence of unique existence of personality is reflected in reality and in the process of its development.

Great interest concerning questions of identity problems is directed to analysis of socio-political relations with confessional psychology influencing the process of forming national identity. Western researches pay peculiar attention to the investigation of ethno- national identity and inter-ethnic conflicts. Considering nation phenomena they take into account psychological relations between people, devotion and loyalty to own national community uniting them and opposing to others. Supporters of psychological identity worked out extended identity theory. They defined identity in the following ways: as inner regularity and identity of a person to his own ethnos, historical status and so on.

There are the following types in theoretical development of Western researches: normal identity; ethnic identity; ethno-dominating identity; ethnic fanaticism; ethnic indifference; ethno- nihilism.

Key words: identity, identification, nation, race relations, ethnos, ethno national identity, ethnic indifference, civil identity.

FEATURES OF ELECTORAL ACTIVITY OF CITIZENS DURING REGIONAL ELECTIONS IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION (FROM 2013 TO 2015)

The article is devoted to the consideration of the electoral cycle from 2013 to 2015, during which a part of citizens demonstrated negative attitude towards the ongoing electoral campaigns. In connection with the expansion of the protest vote, the author suggests that a difference should be made between positive and negative votes, revealing factors that influence them. The author comes to the conclusion that the increase in turnout during the single voting day in 2014 was associated with the factors of foreign policy that influenced the change in the political agenda inside Russia (the reunification of the Crimea with Russia and, as a consequence, growth of patriotism and support of the President of the Russian Federation, as a result of which the elections were perceived as a referendum demonstrating trust to the head of the state).

The article concludes that the main problem of regional elections was not the low level of the voters’ turnout but an increase in the negative electoral activity. Such trend may be changed only through the use of a complex of measures aimed at enhancing the level of confidence in the institution of elections and countering the destructive propaganda.

Key words: electoral activity, the regional elections, the Russian state, public opinion, electoral campaigns.

TO THE ISSUE OF MIGRANT INTEGRATION IN RUSSIA

Problem of integration is analyzed in the context of current Russian migration policy. We consider how the focus of integration problems evolved during post-Soviet period. It is shown that with immigration policy accents gradually switching towards long-term immigration, together with the factor of reduced migration potential of CIS states, migrant integration will become increasingly important for sustainable development of Russian society. We argue that integration measures and programs should be designed taking into account migration policy and processes in general, as well as the basic objectives of economic, demographic and geopolitical development of Russia. Considerable attention is paid to the prospects of the implementation of selective principles in regulation of migration flows and to the implementation of a differentiated approach to the integration of migrants.

Key words: migrant integration, migration policy, integration policy, barriers to integration.
