ETHICS OF PATRIOTISM AND STAGES OF FORMING PATRIOTIC DISCOURSE IN OFFICIAL IDEOLOGY OF TODAY’S RUSSIA

Mikhail Yu. Martynov, Alena I. Gaberkorn.

Abstract
The authors explore the stages of forming the official patriotic discourse in the symbolic politics of Russia in the post-Soviet
period. They focus their attention not only on the politological aspects of the research object, but also on its ethical aspects
related to appropriateness of using such a high moral feeling as love for the Motherland, with which patriotism is usually
identified, for political ends, and so often also in particularistic interests.
The empirical foundation for the research includes the semantic analysis of texts of policy documents adopted by the
state authorities, speeches of the leaders of the state, program documents of the dominant political party and materials of party
discussions.
The authors come to the conclusion that the nationalist and militaristic content in today‘s official discourse of
patriotism is mostly episodic in nature. The patriotic discourse is mainly characterized by positive value meanings defining the
nationwide identity. The authors also state that the political consciousness of citizens critically filters the content of the official
discourse of patriotism. They substantiate this statements with the evidence of constant transformation of this content, with its
restructuring in accordance with the trends in the public consciousness.
They further note that patriotism ceases to be a virtue and loses its moral meaning only under certain specific political
conditions, when its value content is used to cover exclusively particularistic interests, and the official discourse in this case
turns into a tool for manipulating people's consciousness and behaviour.

Key words: patriotism, identity, macro-political identity, identity politics, symbolic politics,legitimacy of authority.
