Abstract:
The purpose of the study. Search for methods and means, formation of author's proposals for improving Direct lines with the President of the Russian Federation. Today, there is an accumulating discontent among citizens in the social environment, associated with the actual lack of opportunities for their participation in the political and legal life of the country, with the exception of the form of democratic elections. Declarative algorithms of interaction between society and government today demonstrate their inefficiency. This phenomenon has a negative impact on the authority of the government, trust in state bodies, and satisfaction with their state on the part of the population. In the early 2000s, the presidential administration developed and implemented a large-scale socio-information mediator that acts as a lightning rod for negative impulses from individual social groups by dispersing them and reducing their significance. Decades of its use have shown a high degree of efficiency. At the same time, taking into account the transition to a new political and legal paradigm, it seems necessary to reconsider the attitude to «direct lines with the President of the Russian Federation» using previously unused opportunities. Conclusions. «Direct Line with the President» is a kind of aggregator for collecting citizens' initiatives, allowing, if used correctly, to build the most optimal dialogue between civil society and the authorities. Public authorities, both at the federal and regional levels, are obliged to use these tools in a more extensive and modern format.
