Summary/Abstract: The article offers an analysis of polemic texts from the electronic version of the newspaper „Izviestija”. The texts have been divided into two groups. The first group is represented by genres which have dialogue characteristics, such as an interview; the second — by genres which have monologue characteristics, such as an article, commentary, and review. The source of study material is articles and commentaries. Particular attention is drawn to the linguistic resources employed by the authors to affect and persuade the reader towards their point of view.
