Abstract
Although the number of disabled people in post-Soviet Russia exceeds 13 million, research regarding many processes occurring within this large segment of the society remains scant. The objective of this article was to examine the different notions and stereotypes dealing with impairments. Using the qualitative approach of oral history, in-depth interviews with 11 men and 16 women with disabilities were carried out in three regions of Russia, as were interviews with six experts in Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod. In addition, accounts of disability experience published in online journals were examined. The analysis of these sources shows that the perception of disabled people and disability in general is ambivalent and impacts the perception of disability and self-identification of disabled people who are also a part of Russian society.

Abstract
This article contains the results of the empirical analysis carried out in 2012-2016 which sought to examine whether patients' narratives of their illness were present in doctor-patient communication and whether this subjective story was significant to both sides of the medical communication in Russian somatic disease medicine. The research was carried out in four stages and combined qualitative and quantitative methods, analyzing the perspectives of patients, doctors and medical students through surveys and interviews as well as looking at online doctor-patient communication in health forums. In all four stages, the results of the research showed that little value was placed on the subjective experience of disease in doctor-patient interactions. The topic of narrative medicine is new to Russian social studies, making the results of this research an important contribution to the establishment of narrative medicine as a global idea advocating the universal therapeutic and ethical value of patients' stories of illness in the "remission society," in which chronic pathologies dominate.
