In this connection, a research of the international accord potential both in the modern Russian society in whole and in individual multinational regions of the country is of special topicality and urgency. The goal of the article is to analyze the international accord potential in polyethnic regions of Volga region.

The main research methods included a mass questionnaire for respondents from Penza, Saratov, Ulyanovsk regions and the Republic of Tatarstan (quota, gender, age and nationality sampling).
