Abstract   |   Authors   |   References
The article presents the evolution in the topic of citizenship and usage of the notion “citizenship” in the Russian society. The author describes trends typical of the citizenship ideology in modern Russia allowing to state that amid weakness of civilian element of the nation’s development, its cultural (often it is interpreted in the ethnic aspect) component strengthens, which is imposed on the peculiar post-Soviet perception of the state with the help of paternalistic discourses that paradoxically coexist and cooperate with discourses of total mistrust of the state and denial of its legitimacy. Under the circumstances the Soviet regime of perceiving citizenship remains and reproduces as the status providing all kinds of social guarantees, in which the state acts as the single source of reproduction
