The paper explores the news coverage of mass murders in Russian digital media. Outbursts of violence in Russian politics were usual at the end of Russian empire but disappeared in Soviet times to revive in Russian Federation. Media is supporting hegemon’s set of ideas about common reality (Gramsci) through covering political terrorism as well, naming shooters “terrorists” from the beginning of developing a story. The strategy of predetermined hostility (Schmitt) as well as other elements of public discourse in media render a possible dialogue unimaginable and reinforce hegemony.
