Abstract
In our country in the middle — the second half of the ХХth century in respect of the sea power, there were traditionally two popular representations that can be safely called myths. On the one side, in the mass consciousness the notion that the USSR was a great sea power was quite natural. On the other side, a very widespread, including among the country's leadership, was the idea of the Soviet Union as a predominantly land power. The article is devoted to problems connected with the self-identification of the USSR as a maritime power. The focus is on the perception of the maritime activities and tasks of the Soviet Union related to maritime activities by members of the Soviet leadership; their representations related to the sea-power.
