The article is aimed at describing the sociocultural situation in the transboundary space of the city of Yakutsk from the perspective of cultural anthropology. The focus is on a marginal person, social forces and movements that exist in the context of cross-cultural communications (within the process of urbanization) and increasing globalization, which only actualizes the issues of identity and self-identification. The article also contains descriptions of the sociocultural landscape, where the process of human socialization begins, and a further process of inculturation is given impetus. Such issues as “Vacuum” and “Oasis” appear in the problem under consideration. “Vacuum” as a phenomenon can be associated with the regional remoteness. In this regard, the territory of Yakutia, like the entire Arctic part of the North-East of Russia, is perceived as a kind of hard-to-reach territory, which develops separately from the Central part of the Russian Federation, the Urals and Western Siberia.
