The peculiarities of ideology in modern Russia are followings: ideology is the product of a cynical mind where the words do not correspond to reality, the truth of the ideology is impossible - it is pure co-communication without references; The ideology of modern Russia "steals" the story in order to manipulate the community, creates a "historical narrative" of such concepts as a great power, Empire, patriotism and glorification of military history, and so on; in ideology clearly differ suggestion (obsession with idea) and logos as an ideological construct, which is the operator of the emotional sphere of common life.
