Abstract

The article presents results of empirical research of trust in news media, citizenship activity of resistance and national identity among adolescents aged 13 to 16 years old (№ 1439). Quite high percentage of respondents for who it was difficult to reply to all questions of citizenship activity of resistance scale can point on lack of citizenship activity of resistance formation among adolescents. Prevalence of positive answers to all questions of national identity scale show evidence of high salience of national identity among adolescents. The least high percentage of positive answers (61,7 %) is connected to importance of Ukrainian trident symbol, the highest percentage of positive answers (77 %) is connected to feeling citizens of Ukraine. Prevalence of negative answers to all questions of trust in news media scale as well as high percentage of respondents who had difficulty in replying all questions of this scale point on low trust in news media. Correlation analysis showed positive connection between all questions among boys and girls with statistical significance p ≤ 0,01. That is to say the higher the level of trust in news media among adolescents in Ukraine, the higher citizenship activity of resistance and salience of national identity are. Likewise, the higher salience of national identity, the higher citizenship activity of resistance is. Despite all critics towards news media in Ukraine it is possible to conclude that news media activity leads to increase of national identity salience and citizenship activity of resistance among adolescents.
