Abstract

The study examines the shaping of political and national identity in Ukraine in historical context, defines the factors influencing the process; the scope of the study covers the period from the beginning of the 20th century to the present days. The urgency of the study lies in the fact of existence of double identities in the collective and individual consciousness of Ukrainians at the beginning of the 20th century, which also complicates the problem of the choice of identities in modern Ukrainian society. The main range of problems requiring further research, debating points and poorly investigated problems, perspectives of studies in the area and ways of solving the existing social problems are identified. Along with the theoretical principles of studying the specifics of shaping of social consciousness, practical measures are taken to overcome the existing crisis in the public consciousness, complex solutions to the problem of shaping the collective historical memory of Ukrainians are proposed.
