The importance of the topic is caused by the differences and contradictions in the values of the Russian society as well as a deep social inequality, territorial disparity and inter-settlement differentiation. Special attention is paid to the analysis of peculiarities of traditional and modernistic values and behavioral stereotypes of Russians depending on a type of settlement.
