Обоснование политики 2000-х годов в дискурсе В.В. Путина и формирование мифа о «лихих девяностых»
The article is a part of the study devoted to framing of memory about the 1990s and the 2000s in the Russian political discourse. It presents the results of analysis of representations of the 1990s in Vladimir Putin’s speeches and interviews from January, 2004 to May, 2008. The author reveals four methods of framing the experience of the 1990s: 1) explicit criticism of the policy of the 1990s and its results; 2) constructing recognizable verbal signs; 3) using populist rhetoric that combines demonstration of care about people’s needs with criticism of “the other” politicians; 4) telling narratives that implicitly shaped connections between events by the selection of episodes and roles assigned to actors. By representing his policy in contrast to the previous experience, Putin contributed to constructing the myth about “the hard nineties”.
