Summary/Abstract: The article analyzes the media narrative of arson attacks on Orthodox churches, which occurred in autumn 2013 in Tatarstan. The study of news programs on three national TV channels (Channel One, Russia and NTV) allowed us to identify the basic elements of the narrative’s plotline and the characteristic features of the images of “we” and “them” and their variations. The analysis revealed a transformation from the counter-cultural rhetoric of the messages to the criminal one, which served as a way of completion of the media narrative and formation of a complete picture of reality.
