There is a close connection between the life of a society and the lexicon of the language spoken by it. In Russia the discourse of power traditionally has an influence on the Russian discourse as a whole. In this course the discourse of power will not only be interpreted as the language of politicians, but also as a language of all pro-government newsmakers and celebrities, journalists, film-makers and even church hierarchs. Special attention will be paid to the key values and challenges declared by Putin’s regime and to its slogans and clichés. Also the discourse of the oppositionists will be discussed and it will be showed that they use almost the same techniques and the same clichés as pro-Putin propagandists turned upside down.
