This study examines the activities of Protestant religious denominations in the Northern Caspian region in the virtual space. The territory of the Northern Caspian region is represented by three regions: the Republic of Kalmyk, Astrakhan Region and the Republic of Kazakhstan (Atyrau Region). The Protestant associations are most concentrated in Astrakhan Region; therefore, in this case it is more appropriate to consider this territory. The main goal of the work is to identify the specifics of Protestant network associations in Astrakhan region, as well as the analysis of their proselytistic activity. The main methodology of the study is the content analysis of regional sites of Protestant religious associations, and groups in social networks, as well as the analysis of expert interviews with the pastor of one of the Protestant churches.
