Political Manipulation In Russia In The Early 21st Century In Digitalization Context


The article dwells on the basic aspects of political manipulation in the national state-legal and social fields in the 21st century. The authors focus on the origin and functional features of political manipulation in the postmodern era, and relative to contemporary Russia - the era of genesis, establishment and development of post-Soviet political and legal forms and institutions. Political manipulation is viewed as a universal phenomenon of national political life, an important tool of power elites aimed at influencing society, mass and individual political and legal consciousness, and political and legal culture as a whole. Moreover, the authors emphasize the importance of activating effective mechanisms to counter various kinds of manipulative practices. They argue for the necessity to restrict them legally, which is important to preserve the original spiritual foundations of the national and cultural environment, especially in the digital age. The authors place particular emphasis on the development of digital manipulative technologies and practices that blur social harmony, socio-economic and political-legal integrity, and the identification of fundamental socio-political actors. The paper shows and discusses the issues of providing digital security of an individual, society and the state, and defines the main trends for ensuring the latter.
