Summary/Abstract: The concept of regional press is used in Russian media studies to determine various media subjects on the market. Consequently, it leads to a confusion of terms. The contemporary structure and condition of the Russian regional press happen to be bequeathed from the Soviet times. This paper classifies and proposes a typology of the contemporary regional press in Russia. Moreover, it characterises its most influential types. In the course of such an analysis, social and political conditions as well as economic and juridical background, contributing to the contemporary Russian regional press and constituting its types, are also taken into consideration. The paper points to the patterns recurring while local spaces of communication in Russia are being formed. In the conclusions it is emphasised that many processes taking place in the regional spaces of communication mirror greater tendencies occurring on the national scale.
