The paper shows the possibility of creating the ‘trust/distrust’ concept. Trust and distrust are studied as actors of social constructing and as means of political communication that allow conducting social and cultural dialogue between the government and the people. The content of trust/distrust is considered from the perspective of their political significance in the context of this dialogue as well as from the perspective of their influence on political communication in formation of the desired model of reality.
