The article considers parliamentary diplomacy as an emerging international political tool for cooperation between governments and societies. Within the context of non-state actors widening in the modern world politics a parliament is considered as an institution, representing both state and civil society, which elects it. The article analyses the latest Russian parliamentary diplomacy practices, determining the most important events and new formats of work, underlining the growing involvement of both chambers of the Federal Assembly — Council of Federation and State Duma — in realizing foreign policy of the Russian Federation — both in bilateral and multilateral contexts. As examples of the latter the activity and participation of Russian members of parliament are considered for the following: Inter-Parliamentary Union, parliamentary assemblies of the Council of Europe and OSCE, Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of CIS and Parliamentary Assembly of CSTO, parliamentary dialogue in BRICS. The specific subject for considering is the abilities of parliamentary diplomacy for global and regional conflicts and crises reconciliation and resolution: on the basis of retrospective observation of a range of cases the practice of applying corresponding skills and institutional resources for parliamentary diplomacy is analyzed, the specific features of parliamentary dialogue culture are underlined, which gets more in demand in terms of complex political relations on the global arena. The article concludes that although there is no clear infrastructure for parliamentary diplomacy, which mostly supplements and realizes through individual bilateral instruments for cooperation and parliamentary dimension (assemblies) of the relevant active international organizations, such a lack does not block to find out some effective approaches to solve topical problems.
