The Russian Journal of Communication. 2015. Vol. 7. No. 1. P. 112-115.
Both Russian and Soviet cultures have commonly been both imperial and eclectic in nature. We should indeed distinguish between two levels of Russian culture: the first, or grassroots culture, contains at least 10–12 Russian ethnic groups, with substantial differences between each group; and the second, upper, level of elite culture (the city of culture) includes a French classical ballet, Italian opera, Viennese operetta, and so on. This second culture developed primarily as a response to, and reception of, European cultures: in this sense, this second group can be considered the most postmodern.
