Abstract. The article deals with the relationship between confessions, between them and other social forces, the state. Opportunities are also being considered for dialogue and cooperation on a variety of issues, such as human rights, upbringing and education (particularly religious).
Examples of the dialogue of leaders of churches of various Christian denominations are given — a meeting in Cuba in February 2016, the relevant documents developed at the World Russian People’s Councils.

It is shown that interfaith dialogue and cooperation is likely on such issues as, for example, the attitude to the situation in various regions of the world and possible participation in its resolution, human rights, religious education and education, etc.

The article notes that with the apparent absence of interfaith differences, with the intervention of radical forces and, especially, politics, the risk of ideological confrontation and open clashes remains, posing a threat to the cultural and national security of the country.

Keywords: sociocultural process; confessions; values; political ideology; religious ideology; identity; consolidation; interfaith dialogue
