Abstract. The article considers the implementation of communicative and pragmatic characteristics of interrogative sentences functioning in the text of a political speech. The author focuses on the analysis of the question and answer approach in the presentation of information, in which a thematic special question initiates a dialogue in a monologue discourse, and the response replicas are rhematized, forming theme-rheme sequences that not only create coherence of the text, but also involve the audience in developing discussion of a speaker with himself/herself. The poly-pragmatic nature of questions ensures the implementation of a multi-faceted plan of the politician: to attract, interest, convince audience, manipulating their minds by the means of a language.
Key words and phrases: политическая коммуникация, вопросно-ответный подход, тема-рематическая последовательность, когезия, специальный вопрос, общий вопрос, political communication, question and answer approach, theme-rheme sequence, cohesion, special question, general question
