Summary/Abstract: The knowledge of dramas written in Russian by Belarusian and Ukrainian playwrights (N. Khalezin, A. Kureytchic, N. Vorozbit, A. Yablonskaya) enables to conclude that the majority of heroes are cosmopolitan and lack national self-identification. The signs of polycultural, heterogeneous tradition are present. In the works of Belarusian authors new format of national identity based on conflicts with the country past and present appears whereas Ukrainian authors discuss current problems of the country.
