In the modern American and European political communication science the relationship between framing and agenda setting approaches are still debated. Whereas some authors believe that these concepts are not fundamentally different, others argue that these constructs are far from identical to each other. Having carefully considered arguments supporting both viewpoints, A.Kazakov agrees with the second approach showing that the concept of framing allows to take into consideration those factors that are out of the scope of the agenda setting theory. The author illustrates his conclusions with the concrete examples from the practice of information warfare around the events in Southeast Ukraine during the summer of 2014.
