Abstract
This article demonstrates how the collective American conscience had formed images of Russia that correlated with the internal and foreign agenda of the American society and with the socio-cultural traditions of its development. These correlations determined the hierarchy of Russia’s images, giving some of them central roles and delegating others to the periphery. Focusing the analysis on the central images of Russia in American representations allows the author to detect long-lived perception trends that emerged in at the end of the 19th century and have remained important up to the beginning of the 21st. The author analyzes the U.S. reactions to Vladimir Putin’s op-ed article on Syria in “The New York Times” on September 11, 2013 as the contemporary case that gives her opportunity to illustrate the main ideas of her concept at the same time taking into account the context of the Ukrainian crises.
