Abstract.

The subject of this research is the manifestations of digital inequality, neglect of which can lead to distortion of feedback between the state and society in the process of rapid digitalization of various mechanism of their interaction. Particularly, the structure of offline and online society in Russia, as in the rest of the world, differs by many parameters. It is demonstrated that even though the phenomenon of digital inequality is well known and actively researched throughout the world, de facto its impact is not considered in government projects aimed at stimulating political participation on the basis of platform relations. For the first time, the author raises the question on the need for better study of the phenomenon of digital inequality in Russia in the context of the impact of its effects upon the quality of establishment of e-democracy and mechanisms of feedback between the government and society. Neglecting this factor in the conditions of rapid digitalization of public policy increases the risks of discrimination of interests of various social groups, development of digital ochlocracy, as well as other negative phenomena.
