The expediency of the problem analysis inthe risk perception by actors of public life is due, that in fact people have different opinions toward the risk theory. The real existence of that fact is presupposedby the necessityin political activity, to analyze possible versions of risk perception by population groups, individuals, political actors of specific risk-based decisions, and in a way or another to assess probabilitis of public reaction for these decisions and their consequences.
