Abstract: In any state, the elite exerts significant impact upon the foreign policy course; at the same time, the elites of traditional societies are yet insufficiently studied. The article attempts to determine the peculiarities of Afghan elite, the features that it imparts upon Afghanistan’s foreign policy, as well as provide the corresponding examples from its history. The factors that triggered such peculiarities are analyzed through the prism of the country’s history and regional geography. The author pursues correlation of the elite and Afghanistan’s foreign policy course with the Pareto’s elite concept, Weber’s national state, and political realism. A conclusion on discrepancy between the elite and Afghanistan’s foreign policy and the traditional European concept of the national elite, state and foreign policy, gives grounds for the more careful and meticulous establishment of relationship with this country. The search for such discrepancies admonishes the erroneous reliance on the mechanisms of market economy and exported democracy.

Abstract: The object of this article is the political process in modern Russia, while the subject is the role, place, and qualitative characteristics of the modern Russian federal and regional elites as the driving force of sociopolitical processes. Based on the sociological (field) research, the authors examine the general perception of the Russian elite; systematize the ideas on the dynamics of elite; as well as assessment of its qualitative state within the post-Soviet political processes. Special attention is given to the measures that encourage the development of interaction between the elites, and forms of the quality improvement of political leadership in modern Russia. The work applies the result of the panel expert surveys conducted during the preparation for the First All-Russian Elitological Congress (2013) and Second All-Russian Elitological Congress (2016). The theoretical-methodological vector of this work consists in the following: 1) generalization, systemic examination, and sociopolitical interpretation of the overall comprehension on the Russian elites and its perception by the expert community; 2) generalization of the system of evaluation of the dynamics of qualitative changes within the elites, and determination of the complex of measures that in the experts’ opinion must encourage the development of interaction between the elites, as well as development of the political leadership. The article carries out the political modeling of the general sociopolitical trends, which manifest and develop within the current ruling class. Based on the acquired empirical and analytical data, the author confirms the prevalence of certain stereotypic ideas about the political and business elite. At the same time, it is demonstrated that the public and expert opinion still give low assessment namely to the elite capital of the modern ruling class. The article concludes that within the political process of modern Russia, we can observe the trend towards estrangement of the elite groups, their desire to preserve the ruling positions and commercial preferences, as well as the overall reduction in mental activity of the elite groups and individual leaders, value of the national interests, problems of national security and sociocultural integrity of the Russian society. The authors also discuss the forms, directions, and measures that are called to correct the negative trends in modern elitogenesis.

The problem of intra-elite conflicts in modern Ukraine

Abstract: This article examines the problem of intra-elite conflicts in Ukraine during the period of 1991-2005. Special attention is given to the trends and peculiarities of the establishment of political elites in Ukraine. Within the framework of this research, the author notes that the struggle of various actors for political power in Ukraine was determined by a number of factors, including the history of the country that explains the emergence of powerful actors of regional scale and fragmented elites and fairly high cost of crushing the opposition, which led to a series of punishing agreements, and limitations from the political institutions. The article demonstrates that the fusion of business and politics in Ukraine poses a threat to domestic security of the nation and undermines the authorities’ ability to democratically govern, since in majority of cases it is the economic interests that determine the political behavior, and interconnections between political players become hostages of agreements between oligarchs.

the process of the renewal of the ruling elite in the Russian Federation. The author of the article also

government of the country and defines the role of the new ruling elite, its competence and efficiency
in governing the country. The methodological grounds of the research involve politological, juridical,
historical and sociological researches that reveal genesis, essence and principles of the development
of the new ruling elite of Russia (2000–2012). The research is based on general principles of studying
social and political phenomena such as systematic, holistic and contradictory development as well as
