Omelchenko V.V.


This article is a further continuation of the work on the review of the basics of state management of national resources (state and use), in relation to its system - forming function-state policy and political symbols (the conceptual level of management). From the system positions of the general theory of classification and systematization, the functions of state management of national resources are considered and the role and place of each of them in a single universal management circuit is determined. The role and place of political symbols (a sub-function of the conceptual-strategic level) are considered on the basis of the proposed invariant structure of the typical contour of state management of the state of national resources (operational-tactical level). From the modern state symbols of the Russian Federation, the iconic image “two - headed eagle” is selected and its prototypes and the origins of their origin, which are located in ancient times, are considered. To consider the evolution of the iconic images of state symbols of modern Russia, it is proposed to systematize and analyze them at different historical stages, to this end, systematize and analyze the following Old Testament images of power (state symbols) of various countries of the world: “non-predatory bird”, “bird of prey”, “griffin”, “two-headed eagle”, systematize and analyze the sacred images of power “double-headed eagle” and “griffin” in the symbolism of the countries of the world with the identification of their sacred meanings-binary (binary). Conclusions are drawn about the common origins of the origin and distribution of these Old Testament images of state symbols in the countries of the Indo-European community, the systematization and analysis of the Old Testament images of power (state symbols) of various countries of the world: “non-predatory bird”, “bird of prey”, “griffon”, “double - headed eagle” allows us to trace the evolution of the origin and formation of the main state symbol of Russia “double-headed eagle”, at the heart of the Old Testament images of power “griffin” and “double-headed eagle” in the symbolism of the countries of the world lie the sacred meanings of the universal and fundamental principle of reality (world, reality, being) - the duality (duality) of opposite, proportionate and balanced entities.

Protest in Russia 2017-2021: Technologies and Patterns

Shults E.E.


The article analyzes the patterns and technologies of organizing political protest in Russia in the period 2017-2021. The author concludes that the start of the protests in March 2017 was aimed at influencing the presidential elections in March 2018, in addition, the “protests of schoolchildren” were to launch the pattern of “chain reaction” in rising of protest actions. The author states that in this new wave of protests, there is a change of “face of protest”: that is an attempt to remove one of the main problems of Russian political protest - a large number of opinion leaders, each of whom has an extremely low rating, and the absence of single ideological orientation of the protest. Protest organization technologies share patterns with the radical mass forms of social protest known as the “color revolutions” and events of the Arab Spring. Political protests of 2017-2021 again showed the operability of simple slogans, but the impossibility of a long-term alliance in the ranks of protesters. The lack of a strong ideology makes these protests swift: explosive and rapidly fading, unable to mobilize new supporters.

The Saudi Political System and the Calculations of the New Balances in the Middle East

Othman A.H.


This article highlights the role of Saudi Arabia in the process of regional integration and the establishment of new balances of power in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is arguably one of the most important states in the region in terms of power, economy and diplomacy. Its power is not only limited to political influence, but also carries with it religious dimensions that helped to shape and escalate regional situation as manifested through Saudi Arabia’s attempts to contain non-Arab forces to establish privileged relations with them from a national or Islamic perspective .Saudi Arabia has stepped up military agreements to ensure regional balance in the Middle East, one of the most important international regions. The stability of the region is considered to be of international concern. It is against this backdrop that Saudi Arabia competes for influence in the Middle East. In addition to the events of September 11, 2001, which negatively affected the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States of America, especially after the accusations made by the United States against Saudi Arabia and accused it of supporting the perpetrators of the September 11 attacks, the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia was strained. Saudi Arabia began to look for a new partner that would have considerable political weight, and in Russia found what it was looking for. The relationship between Saudi Arabia and the Russian Federation began to develop gradually despite the absence of political exchange and cooperation between the two parties for a long time, and this relationship took the form of expansion to include the field of diplomatic representation and the conclusion of economic and oil agreements and in various other fields represents the political rapprochement between the two countries.
