Abstract
The article is devoted to the study of the forms of political activity of Russian youth through the prism of its sources on political information. The relevance of the study consists of a combination of a thorough review of the main research directions on the role of the youth participation in the socio-political process and the involvement of a specific empirical study conducted in the spring of 2019. This allows one to highlight different aspects of the situation under consideration. The empirical part of the study is based on the study “Youth Representations on the Opportunities of the Youth Leaders and Youth Organizations in Russia.” This study was conducted in the four constituent entities of the Russian Federation (Altai Territory, Leningrad and Novosibirsk Regions, and St. Petersburg) in late April and early May 2019. A personal standardized interview was a research method. The sample size was 1,000 respondents (250 in each of the regions), who were the young people aged 14 to 30 years, permanently residing in the territories of the studied subjects of the federation. The article is of interest to those researchers working on the topic of the interaction between the real political process and such a significant group of the population as the youth, both professionally engaged in this topic and just interested.
