The analysis of post-Soviet daily life based on characteristics of a perceived everyday world norm is conducted in relation to the definition of the latter, which is used as a reference guide to quantify features which can be considered ordinary, daily life and an individual’s activities therein. Post-Soviet daily routine was being formed to the background of the Soviet Union collapse and the emergence of a new social reality. Ideological circumstances played a prominent role in this process with many of the relevant commemorations related to the Soviet past occurring today at the periphery of the ideological system, whilst still being incorporated in a discursive manner. Today, whilst there are drastic changes in the reform processes, the inconsistent interaction of embedded culture with the established culture generates a rejection of social innovations. All of this is the basis of a threat to the national security of Russia because it raises numerous contradictions in the perceived expected norms of life in Russia when compared to those perceived occurring around the world. In this regard, to ensure national security, it seems necessary to study the specifics of every day’s life patterns, expectations and the established norms of everyday life present in modern post-Soviet Russia.
