Personal Identity in the Situation of Identification System Change (Socio-Psychological Effects of the Ukrainian Breakup)

Ryabikina Zinaida I., Kuban State University

The article offers definition of identity from the theoretical angle of subjective-existential approach. It is pointed out that on the one hand personal identity reflects the degree of definiteness, consistency of personality’s system organization with inclusion of all the fields of its existence. On the other hand, personality defines itself as an actor, that holds a certain position in the system of social identifications and its identity is conditioned by the way a personality identifies Others in relation to itself. The article shows that social destructions, due to the Ukraine events, caused restructuring of the system of identifications. The identification’s component (cognitive, affective, conative) can be characterized by heterochrony during the period of new system formation. A striking difference between the respondents’ visions of Americans, Ukrainians, and people of the Crimea have been pointed out. The feelings and orientation towards possible actions, which are accompanying are weakly differentiated.
