• The current article is devoted to the linguistic analysis of the information materials
    of the popular German mass media covering the Ukrainian crisis in 2014. Special
    attention is paid to the formation of the Russian and Ukrainian images in the
    framework of the information-psychological confrontation through psycholinguistic
    processing of the text, usage of special approaches to information definition and
    representation. As a result of the analysis, the authors have come to conclusion
    that a lot of articles contain not only informational, but also propagandistic implied
    sense, main aim of which is to suggest readers such point of view, which corresponds
    to the current political line of the European Union (EU) and Germany in relation to
    the Ukrainian crisis and its main actors.
