One of the main reasons for prolongation of the crisis of contemporary Russian society is a profound social disconnection, alienation of the leading segments of the society. The social consolidation is considered as a fundamental basis to overcome the crisis and to form the civil society and the Russian civil (political) nation. We suggest how the consolidation of Russian society could be measured applying the traditional understanding of the empirical material as semantic space. The empirical data consist from three all-Russian surveys carried out in 2007, 2009 and 2011. According to our analysis the level of consolidation of Russian society decreased in last two years. The respondents with middle and high income are most focused on the consolidation. We describe the profile of the consolidators and allocate the features that can be used to unite most of the population of all age groups and income levels. The social and political stability of Russian society depends on the direction in which the consolidation develops.
