Changes of a social system inevitably lead to emergence of new concepts and to reconsideration, deactualization, or disappearance of the old ones. The change in the national policy of the state after the October Socialist Revolution caused the emergence of a new ideological concept «Friendship among peoples» which became the basis of new relationships between all the peoples in the USSR. The article addresses the structure and content of the ideological concept «Friendship among peoples» which are represented in philosophical and ideological texts of that period, as well as the reinterpretation of this concept in the minds of ordinary Soviet people. The article carries out a comparison of the main characteristics of the concept «Friendship among peoples» existing in the minds of representatives of different nationalities living in the Soviet Union and the cognitive signs of the concept «Friendship»; the characteristics of the former are studied by means of sociological research, the latter have been figured out by the author on the basis of analysis of linguistic literature devoted to this concept, association experiments with its representatives, as well as the study of lexicographic sources. The analysis shows that the concept «Friendship among peoples» in the course of its reinterpretation has gradually lost its ideological core and got the cognitive signs which bring it closer to the «Friendship» concept, and after Perestroika in Russia it lost its previous meaning and now means only «friendly relations between representatives of different peoples in Russia».
