Title: Historical memory, society, and power
Summary: One of the clear features of public life in modern Russia is an active government influence on public consciousness and, perhaps above all, on the historical memory. Especially since the beginning of 2014, i.e. events in Ukraine, and on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Soviet victory in the Great Patriotic War, this process has increased. The government influence is carried out at all levels of state life - from the daily scenes on television and ending with the initiation of legislative proposals in the State Duma. Such active and large-scale information influence aiming at an impact on the historical memory of the people has to be considered.
Keywords: society, personality, social consciousness, state, power, politics, culture, history, historical memory.
