Based on the results of independent sociological empirical studies, the authors of this article come to a number of original conclusions on the strength of the interethnic situation that has developed in Russia. It was registered a low status of national languages society on the background of increasing significance of Russian language as a language of interethnic communication in Dagestan society. This fact was concluded on the basis of conditions of ethnization of social processes in various regions of Russia South.
