Slavic mythology is a unique system of archaic thought and belief that unites the Slavic peoples at a certain cultural-religious site. The foundation of this belief system is paganism. Paganist belief, in the pantheon, founded by Vladimir, is used to protect and strengthen political, social unity. The purpose of this work is to examine the meaning of gods, taking part in the pantheon such as Perun, Khors, Dazhbog, Stribog, Simargl, Makosh in the paganist Russian culture and to explain the intentions of Vladimir in establishing this pantheon.
