The study contains an outline of the results of linguo-pragmatic analysis of the speech behavior of politicians who are participants of parliamentary discourse. The concept of parliamentary discourse is defined as one of the varieties of political discourse within the framework of institutional communication. The genre heterogeneity of political discourse is substantiated and the genre of debates, including pre-election and parliamentary debates, is defined. It is revealed that parliamentary debates mostly represent  the linguo-pragmatic specificities of parliamentary discourse. The materials for the analysis consisted of transcripts of meetings of the Parliament of Ukraine in 2004-2019. The main criterion of the typology was the peculiarities of the observed communicative interactions - co-operative and conflict ones. Regulatory, informational and consolidation communication strategies are identified within the framework of cooperative communication, within the framework of conflict interaction - declarative, confrontational and argumentative-critical ones.
