Annotation Regional identity is usually considered as a certain type of consciousness of the population of the territory. The intelligentsia plays an important role in this process. They form an image of the region, popularize and extend this image among other population of the region and outside the region. The research presented relies on post-colonialism methodology, popular in modern social science. We suggest the hypothesis of a research: the colonial nature of development of Siberia and the Far East leads to formation of specific type of the regional intellectuals, which are characterized by the expressed tendency to a gap with the local culture and the accelerated change of demographic base. In the course of globalization, the geographical remoteness of Siberia and the Far East stops being the factor constraining migration. As a result, carriers of regional identity are hostages of colonial policy and in the second or third generation they seek to leave the historical homeland. It leads to considerable transformation of cultural identity of Siberian and the Far East regions and can be considered as potential threat of the Russian statehood.
Key words regional identity, intellectuals, migration, educational migration, Siberia, Far East
