The purpose of the study is to identify real political science content of the concept "nationalization of the elite". This concept is rather widely used in political analytics, however, studies that reveal essential characteristics of the process of gaining national status by political elite are practically lacking. The author for the first time describes the correlation of goal-setting and nationalization of the elite and proves the necessity to reject borrowing targets and indicators of social development from Western culture. The author regards return to independent historical creative work based on national cultural tradition as the essence of nationalization of the elite.
