The article is devoted to the reconstruction of the regional identity models. Research materials include new media of the Urals (“URA.RU”), Tatarstan (“Tatar-inform”) and Kaliningrad Oblast (“New Kaliningrad”). Identity is considered as a discursive concept realized through a set of identifications of diverse thematic areas modified by the supertextual categories of time and space. The author uses a critical approach and analyzes the construction practices of subject positions in the regional media discourse, which determine the selection and description of the objects and the key concepts. The comparative analysis has revealed the similarities and differences of the media texts of the three territories both in terms of the choice of discursive practices and the corresponding semantic content. The author makes a conclusion about the degree of actualization of common concepts. The territories are united by the landscape geographical principle of the selection of spatial objects, nominations of which serve as verbal codes of their “own”. The temporal region identification is characterized by the inhabitants’ retrospective orientation towards the past influencing the present. Narrative practices of construction of the local community history and its political identification in the present prevail. Intersections of political and religious discursive practices have also been detected. The key identifications of the Urals are somehow or rather connected with mountainous areas, of Tatarstan - with ethno-confessional and economic areas, of Kaliningrad region - with the regional history and architectural originality.
