Abstract.

The subject of research are the conceptual approaches of Western and Russian researchers regarding Russia's isolation by Western countries. Attention is focused on the typologization of Russian and American groups of researchers who are aware of the nature of Russia's isolation, as well as on outlining the interests represented by particular groups of American experts. The proponents of Russia's isolation in a broad variety of spheres, including conducting economic and ideological war, political destabilization and other methods, represent the majority.
Over the course of the research the author employed the methods of analysis, synthesis, the typological method that allowed for a greater measure of generalization, compared to classification and systematization. The scientific novelty of this research is the fact that the analysis of modern foreign discussions in political and academic circles on Russia-Euro Atlantic community-related issues.
The analysis conducted has discovered a multitude of viewpoints regarding Russian isolation by Western countries, and showed that, among Russian researchers, there is no single viewpoint on how to act in the situation when Russia found itself between the threat of isolation, and the impossibility of remaining a subsystem of America's economy.
