Based on constructivist and poststructural approaches to IR this study will explore the underestimated in current literature emotional context of the ongoing confrontation between Russia, France, and the U.S., and answer the question: what are the similarities and differences in discursive models of Russia’s political guilt through 2017-2019 official speeches of E.Macron and D.Trump. In the study discursive models of realization the collective guilt are presented: discursive strategies, tactics, hedging, metaphors, euphemisms, irony, etc. The author explains the role of collective guilt and when the guilt undermines further forgiveness. The use of comparative and discourse analysis will make it possible to clarify the similarities and differences in the speeches of the presidents of the U. S. and France. Findings justify the differences in the content of collective guilt between the U.S. and France and the expected outcome of these accuses.
