TRENDS AND PROBLEMS OF THE PUBLIC SPHERE DEVELOPMENT IN RUSSIA
This article focuses on genesis and problems of the public sphere in Russia. The author concentrates on dysfunctional processes of the political public sphere development that prevent it from normal functioning. The public sphere is an important social area of modern society. It is in the public sphere where public opinion is developed, which limits state power and shapes democratic legitimacy through articulation of public interests, public control over government activity, participating in discussions and formation of state policy. The transition in the early 1990s from a planned socialist system to a market economy and from a socialist state to a democratic one significantly transformed the public sphere of Russia.
