Abstract: Žlugus Tarybų Sąjungai, Baltijos šalys ir Rusijos Federacija atsidūrė skirtingose geopolitinėse paradigmose. Šis faktas lemia įtampą Lietuvos, Latvijos, Estijos (viena geopolitinė paradigma) ir Rusijos (kita geopolitinė paradigma) tarpusavio santykiuose. Dėl šios priežasties yra svarbu atskleisti, kaip vienos valstybės visuomenė (šiuo atveju – Rusijos) vertina kitą valstybę ar valstybių grupę (šiuo atveju – Baltijos šalis). Šį tikslą padeda pasiekti žiniasklaidos tyrimai. Pateikiamame straipsnyje nagrinėjamas Baltijos šalių vaizdinys Rusijos internetinės žiniasklaidos tekstuose apie tarpvalstybinių santykių įtampą.
Russia and the Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia) are in different geopolitical areas nowadays. After the Soviet Union collapse Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia choose Euro-Atlantic way of integration. The strategy of Russia is to protect its interests in pos-soviet area and to be a “point of power” in this region. Different geopolitical vectors determine possible conflict situations between Russia and the Baltic States. In this term of conditions an image of one country (or group of countries) in public opinion of another country residents become most important. The mass media is one of key players in process of construct a public opinion. In this case the role of Internet mass media is particularly important, because it’s dynamic, fast growing sector of global information. The image of the Baltic States in Russian mass media is mostly negative. The basic keynotes in this image construction are: historical dimension (“Nazism” in the Baltic States), dimension of Russian-speaking minority (“breach of minority rights”), “incompetence” of the Baltic States officials in foreign or domestic policy (when it concern to Russia interests). Russia is also often highlighted as “side of conflict” even in cases of Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian local affairs. Note aspects of image of the Baltic States are fixated in consciousness of Russian society. It’s significant disadvantage in the way of political, cultural and humanitarian affairs development between Russia and Baltic states.
