One of the most important problems of modern nation building in Russia is to reduce the level of disintegrational potential of ethnic and religious differences in Russian society. In this regard, the Russian scientific discourse has actualized the problem of the formation in Russia a national-civilizational identity capable of overcoming ethnic and confessional contradictions in the society. In the socio-pedagogical interpretation of this problem, the actual direction is the search for appropriate socio-cultural phenomena, the creation of pedagogical concepts and models based on the successive transfer of socio-cultural experience. One of such phenomena is the culture of the Russian Cossacks, which is the expression of the socially significant values of Russian culture that are in demand today and reflect the image of Russia as a Eurasian and Russian civilization. In the article, the culture of educational potential of the Russian Cossacks as a sociocultural phenomenon of the Russian civilization, which has transethnic foundation, is analyzed. As an up-to-date tendency is presented the modern conception of sociocultural education – the Cossacks pedagogics, which is based on successive transfer of sociocultural experience and which realizes national and cultural traditions of civilizational unity of the Russian community in the Russian educational paradigm.
