The new conceptualization of international relations in the cybersphere poses plenty of controversies for both academics and practice.

This research focuses on the problem of narratives of US-Russian relations, their identities, and perceptions in cyberpolitics. The paper addresses the question of US and Russian distinct understanding of cyberpolitics that shape their relations in virtual space. To answer the research, question the study conducts qualitative methods of textual analysis of official documents and discourse analysis of media articles to examine the hypothesis that they represent asymmetrical power relations.
