In this paper there was studied a very up to date topic. Further, this paper is going to prove the importance of culture, media and the way both shape politics, in case of Russian-French relations in the Post-Soviet times. Why this period was chosen? The answer is that exactly after the collapse of Soviet Union, political relations with Europe and West have been gone through many periods, not even according to time limits, but also according to events, changes in politics and power distribution. France was one of the most interesting and influential examples, particularly for Russia in cultural-mediatized image, as long as countries have much more in common than it might be regarded at first. Cultural diplomacy has existed as a practice for centuries. Although the term “cultural diplomacy” was recently established, evidence of its practice can be seen throughout history and has existed for centuries. Researchers, travelers, traders, teachers and artists can be seen as living examples of unofficial ambassadors or early cultural diplomats. Indeed, any person who interacts with different cultures now or in the past promotes a form of cultural exchange that can occur in areas such as art, sports, literature, music, science, business and economics, and others. Also, the phenomena such as mediatization turned nowadays as a tool of public coordination and communication in all cultural spheres. Hence under this rather string media pressure the new society is in process of formation nowadays. Even when it is rather discussible and topic, that has a huge historical background, therefore this is a very not well deeply studied issue. Therefore, by the empirical case of Russia and France this paper is going to try to provide the essence of the phenomenon of cultural mediatizes image after, especially after the 1991. The work lists the different opinions of Russian and foreign researchers, and also expresses its own point of view.
