Стратегическая культура и фреймы коллективной памяти (на примере постсоветской России)

History is usually considered both a factor of development of the strategic culture, and a source of empirical evidence about it. However, what actually shapes perceptions of security threats is not “history” as objectivist analytic reconstruction of the collective past but shared ideas about this past. The article proposes the theoretical frame for an analysis of connection between history and strategic culture based on the concept of the frames of collective remembrance, and tests it on the Russian case. It traces the connection between the transforming frames of remembrance about the experience of the USSR and Russia in the 1990s, and perceptions of security threats by the Russian incumbent elites.
