Ethnicity and Fellow-Citizenship (Ethno-National Movements in Finno-Ugrian Regions of the Russian Federation)
The authors make an attempt to retrace political and ideological evolution of ethno-national movements in Finno-Ugrian regions of the Russian Federation within the past decade and a half. Considerable attention is given to the idea of ethnic self-determination and to the attempts of putting it into practice. Ethno-national leaders' efforts to form a new identity - that of the Finno-Ugrian world - are being characterized. These leaders' attitude is also estimated, towards Russian Federation. The conclusion made is to the effect that the said regions are witnessing ethnic communities' fragmentation, as well as their political interests' regionalization processes beginning to gather momentum.
