This paper is devoted to the study of the factors of political agenda setting in non-democratic states in the case of Russia since 2000. Based on a literature review, it is hypothesized that among these factors are mass-media, political parties and the security services. Using probabilistic topic modelling applied to a corpus of speeches in the State Duma from the year 2000, a topic model of the agenda is described. Word correlations are calculated for the terms related to the factors in question to explore the context in which they were mentioned in the speeches and their relation to the topics.
