Russian and American conservative discourses have been both gaining in power for the last 5 years. Putin promotes Russian traditional values while Trump’s rhetoric largely appeals to the conservative voters. However, there are no signs of any improvement in the US-Russia relations. The paper aims at studying the manifestation of right conservative discourse comparatively, finding the common and distinctive features. In order to analyse discourses, we will apply critical discourse analysis. We will carefully choose communicative events of policy makers, diplomats and politicians. To carry out a more thorough study we will need to apply historical analysis technics. It will help to find the roots of particular discourse practiсes.

It will provide better understanding of right conservative ideology and will approach the problem of defining the notion of “conservatism”. The paper will be useful for diplomats and policymakers in terms of better understanding of their counterparts.
