Abstract

Introduction. In the article, the authors analyzed the reports of the Bolshevik leaders on the
5
th conference of the Communist Party (Bolsheviks) of Ukraine, in particular, the examples of the lexemes they
used and their interpretations which gave them an additional meaning, new expressive coloration. New semantic
categorical units “connotation” and “denotations” were introduced into the language of the language of
contemporary historical research. A range of the documents from the Central State Archives of Public Unions were
introduced into the scientifi c use for the fi rst time for the objective analysis, realization of the aim and performing
the tasks.
Methodology of the study is based onto civilizational and anthropological social and cultural approaches,
and principles of historicism. The authors also used problematic chronological, historical typological, historical
comparative, and other methods.
The purpose of our study is to analyze, characterize, generalize the deformations of the consciousness, content,
social infl uences of the Communist ideology, latent components of the language code and textual interactions, that
were strongly rooted in the language of communication and thinking, participated in the formation of cultural
codes and infl uenced the choice of historical path.
Conclusions. After analyzing some reports of Bolshevik leaders at the Vth Conference of the Communist Party
of Ukraine (Bolsheviks), it was found out that leaders often distorted the meaning of the words and phrases they
used, especially those which possessed political features (e.g. “Ukrainian nationalists”, “independence-carriers”,
“beggar” etc.). Taking into account the declared approaches, new semantic categorical units «connotation»,
«denotation» were introduced into the narrative of modern historical research. For the fi rst time, the transcript of
the Vth Conference of the Communist Party of Ukraine (Bolsheviks) without editorial changes was introduced into
scientifi c fi eld as a document that refl ects the beliefs of the then Communist leaders.
