The author argues his thesis about the fundamental differences in the formation of the two new national identities. In his opinion, the roots of the Ukrainian identification go back to history, and are closer to rural traditions and rural mentality. This process developed in the opposition to the Pan-Russian cultural identification since the end of the XlX-th century. At the same time, the author thinks that the new Russian identification is not the direct continuation of either Pre-Peter time or the Pre-October Imperial Russian Identification though it has a traditional patriotic element.
