This opens up new opportunities to overcome those problems in the context of globalization through cultural and civilizational policy of different states, including Russia. In this context, special attention is paid to cultural and civilizational foundations of social systems. The author analyzes conditions when differences in the cultural and civilizational development of various societies become triggers of social instability and ‘color revolutions’.
