Abstract: The article is dedicated to the analysis of the status of Russian language abroad, as well as measures aimed at strengthening of its positions. Years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian language became not so popular for studying, thus the modern mechanisms regarding its promotion have outdated and lose their effectiveness. The work examines the potential opportunities and actions for strengthening of the humanitarian and political influence of Russia in near abroad and Western countries. The comparative-historical and institutional approaches comprised the theoretical-methodological foundation of this research. The author also uses the comparative approach aimed at determination of the positive experience of the institution of cultural diplomacy, which can be adjusted and find its application in practice within the framework of realization of Russia’s modern foreign policy. The Russian research do not give enough attention to the analysis of international experience in the area of implementation of cultural diplomacy as the instrument that significantly affects the successes in foreign policy; therefore, the author sets a task to influence the positions of the Russian language in the world. This will contribute into the growth of international prestige of the existing mechanisms, open new opportunities for multilateral cooperation of cultural diplomacy in form of the instrument of realization of Russia’s foreign policy with the representatives of executive authorities of foreign states on the international arena.
