The increasing role of political movements and parties as the main force changing society causes increased attention of scientists to political texts. Politics, as a sphere of public life, determines person's behavioral reactions and governs public consciousness.At the same time, not only the information itself is of particular importance, but also the formation of an assessment of social phenomena as a means of influencing public opinion The purpose of this research is to analyze linguistic event media texts in Russian, German and French, thematically related to the reinterpretation of the results of the First World War, and to determine the role of these texts in shaping public opinion as related to the anniversary of the end of the First World War.Presumably, if political discourse is controlled by the main ideologies, then the choice of language means should be treated as a mechanism for launching an evaluative attitude in structuring the space of "reality". Therefore, comparative, descriptive, and statistical methods have been chosen as the leading methods for conducting this study, which allows us to present the formation of public assessment of the stated events, and also the main ideas lying behind the text in the most illustrative way.The research material is taken from some political media texts in the European media discourse (articles written in Russian, German and French) dedicated to the centenary of the end of the First World War. We analyzed the publications that received the highest number of views according to open data from the Internet.The most important linguistic component of political discourse is the politically oriented vocabulary, its semantic features and cross-cultural differences. Lexical units in these texts are inextricably linked to the associative field represented in a foreign language environment.
