Radio, telephone, television, COSMONATION: THE RISE OF THE MULTISITE NATION 39 and the Internet all have made it possible for communities to communicate with each other and thereby develop and maintain links between sites. The virtual public sphere that develops as a result of the online communication and discussion by members of the expanded nation is another aspect of the digital dimension that most influences the social shape of the cosmonation. In the cosmonational virtual public sphere, people connect with others to discuss and inform about affairs concerning the cosmonation.
S. LAGUERRE maintain their own specificity. As such, the questions to be answered are: How is a cosmonation assembled to form a crossborder social formation?

Some changes reflect the relations between the hostland and the homeland before the collapse of the Soviet Union, when diasporans were sometimes seen as potential security risks or fifth columns.
