The paper deals with the problem of defining responsible leadership in international relations and domestic policy. The analysis of theoretical approaches to understanding leadership in politics and specifics of decision-making made it possible to identify responsible leadership criteria, to determine their nature and the minimum quantity required. The table of responsible leadership, generated on the basis of the analysis, allowed to create a new behavioral model of leadership based on the synthesis of two approaches: typology of political leadership by Jean Blondel and the principle of “Nash equilibrium”. Their aggregate gives us the possibility to talk not only about the responsibility of a true political leader, but also about his indispensable accountability, which allows the leader to ensure sustainable development and to achieve the most positive result in foreign and domestic policy.
