Relevance of the chosen topic due to the fact that at the present stage of the dynamics of Russia is largely determined by the globalization processes. The contradictory nature of globalization is that it can serve as a basis for the idea of progress, which contributes to the homogenization of the world and cultural universalism and ideas of the world’s diversity, multiculturalism. Such contradictions generate ambiguous manifestations in local cultures, including in Russia. The article attempts to analyze the main aspect of the integration process in the prevailing scientific developments in the study of the processes of integration of Russian culture in the world space - critical, positivist and syncretic.

Key words: Globalization Processes,Integration,Cultural Universalism,Multiculturalism,Cultural identity,World Civilization,the Local Culture
