FORMATION OF THE PARTY IMAGE AS AN ELEMENT OF POLITICAL MANAGEMENT

The presented study is devoted to the study of the process of forming the image of a political party in the context of the practical experience accumulated in the course of preparing for a single voting day in Russia in 2020. The purpose of this work is to identify new trends in the process of creating the image of political parties in Russia within the framework of the development of political management. The research methodology is built on the basis of a combination of descriptive, structural and comparative analysis. The author comes to the conclusion that the majority of parties are currently actively rebuilding their image. The development of this process is due to a decrease in the level of support by voters for the United Russia party, as well as the desire of its competitors to use this situation as a “window of opportunity” for increasing influence. All parties transform their image by addressing the themes of regional patriotism and leveling the level of development of territories. In attempts to attract part of the electorate of rivals, symbolic mimicry is actively used. United Russia develops a discourse of cooperation between society and government, while representatives of the parliamentary opposition build their image around the theme of the fight against the ruling party, whose policy is positioned as the primary source of crisis phenomena in the socio-economic development of Russia.

Key words: political party, image, political management, formation, «United Russia», LDPR, Communist Party of the Russian Federation, «Fair Russia», elections, election campaign.

Among the key factors of the genesis of corruption, which are directly related to the education system, it is highlighted its underfunding, the ineffectiveness of the existing schemes for the distribution of the wage fund, the breakdown of the connection between the training system in educational institutions and the demands of the labor market, an increase in the workload on teachers, the disproportion of the rights and duties of a teacher. primary and secondary schools, and in many respects the imitative nature of correspondence education in a significant part of universities.

Key words: corruption, corruption-generating factor, education, Russia.

RATIONAL AND UNCONSCIOUS COMPONENTS IN THE IMAGE OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION (BASED ON RESEARCH MATERIALS 2018-2020)

This article is devoted to the consideration of rational and unconscious components in the image of the Government of the Russian Federation (the second government of D.A. Medvedev 2018-2020). The efficiency and effectiveness of the activities of the supreme executive body depends not only on the functional component, but is also determined by its legitimacy and the level of trust on the part of citizens.

The images of power institutions, formed in the mass consciousness, occupy an important place in the political space, since they have confirmed their importance in shaping public opinion and influencing political processes.

In the article, the author examines the image of the Government of the Russian Federation, formed at the rational and irrational levels. The perceived components of the image were investigated by the author through verbalized structures and analysis of the respondents' attitude to this political institution. To study the unconscious, deep components of the image, the author used the method of fixed associations with an animal, color and smell.

It should be noted that the image of the Government of the Russian Federation, formed at the unconscious level, is consistent with the image formed at the rational level. Basically, the image of the institution of power is negatively emotionally colored. An interesting observation is that the image is quite contradictory: on the one hand, the government, in the minds of citizens, is a significant political institution, and on the other hand, it is passive, inactive and weak.

Key words: political perception, image of authorities, image of government, irrational component, unconscious component.

“NOVICHOK” – CHEMICAL WARFARE AGENT (CWA) OF THE WEST AGAINST RUSSIA

The article analyzes the policy of containment of Russia, pursued by the collective West using prohibited methods. The legendary "Novichok", due to the promotion of a "fake" information campaign, is turning into a "chemical warfare agent" (CWA) of the West in its confrontation with Russia. It is shown that the United States has the strongest motivation in conducting the “Navalny’s Novichok” operation aimed at closing the Nord Stream-2 conducted by the intelligent services forces. It is vital for Russia to multiply its positions on the internal and external information fronts.

Key words: politics, chemical warfare agent, information war, energy resources, crisis, security.

REASONS FOR THE FAILURES OF MODERN POLITICAL AND LEGAL TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD PERIPHERAL

Transformations of political and legal institutions are a condition for the evolutionary development of any state and seem to be the most desirable option for modernization. The article examines the reason for the failure of political and legal institutional transformations at the international level - in the countries of the world periphery, which, due to a combination of many factors, became full-fledged participants in the system of international relations only in the twentieth century, and for which the problem of their own social development is much more acute than in others states. The author analyzes domestic and foreign studies focused on revealing the essential factors that complicate the necessary institutional changes in the states under consideration. In addition, the sought-after reasons are presented and clarified, which, depending on the contextual analysis, provide a unique empirical material in relation to each individual peripheral state.

Key words: political and legal institutions, periphery, state, power, world system, institutional transformations.

THE NEW VIEW TO THE WORLD POLITICS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE INTEGRAL THEORY

Global challenges that the humanity is facing in the XXI century may reach their tipping point and start a destructive process of domino effect for the convergence of catastrophes.

In this article the author proposes to look at the world politics from the perspective of the American philosopher Ken Wilber’s integral theory and study the benefits of the integral model appliance to the analysis of the future world politics’ aspects.

Key words: world politics, integral theory, integral perspective, international relations theory.

FORMATION OF A STABLE ELECTORAL MODEL IN THE POST-SOVIET SPACE

Democratic societies tend to have well-balanced systems of government, particularly in electoral systems. The existing system of political and managerial relations is characterized by significant shortcomings in its functioning. These problems have existed since independence. Due to the imperfection of the legislative framework and the lack of the necessary political will, there remains an imbalance in the formation and activity of the branches of government, which requires a mandatory solution. These problems make it necessary to develop and apply mechanisms that would neutralize the negative impact on the electoral system. Defining specific ways to develop the electoral system is still a debatable issue. Issues of manipulation during the electoral process, in the rotation of power elites, parliamentary immunity, de-ideologization of political parties, and the formation of actual bipartisanship need to be addressed. The improvement of the electoral system requires the development and application of mechanisms that can eliminate these and other problems in its functioning. The purpose of the article is to identify and justify mechanisms for overcoming problems in the electoral system.

Key words: elections, system, analysis, sustainability, formation.
