Abstract (English):
he present research featured the effect of Postmodern on the state youth policy with its spatial characteristics and the post-truth concept. The authors examined the genesis and development of the post-truth space. The study involved intertextual, network, intent, and discourse analyses, which made it possible to describe the interpretative features of Postmodern. The authors believe that Russian state youth policy has become a "factoid factory": together with marketing and PR technologies, factoids led to the total simulation of state youth policy, which keeps generating new simulations instead of real success and achievements. Postmodern blurs and destabilizes the criteria for identity and stratification. Away from the scientific worldview, young citizens are ready to believe in irrational semantic constructions formed by a symbiosis of lies and post-truths, like in the pre-industrial epoch. The post-truth is a set of unreliable socio-political representations formed in a certain civilian environment through the targeted application of political technologies. The authors applied the nonlinear methodology to interpret the postmodern approach to the state youth policy. They used the categorical and conceptual apparatus of Postmodern to analyze the problems and typology of the domestic state youth policy. The paper focuses on the possibilities of the network approach in the optimization of the existing state youth policy, as well as on the prospects and potential obstacles to its implementation. The research also featured the institutional transformations of the youth policy in relation to the technologies of manipulation and data falsification in the political and administrative process, where the very interaction of political actors on post-truth network sites forms various forms of network interactions.
