The main aim of my report is to demonstrate the possibility of a kinetic description of autowave processes in any active medium and of the hydrodynamic motion in liquids. Three examples of active media from macroscopic elements will be presented: the medium from bistable elements, the media of Van der Pol oscillators, the media with chemical reactions. In the last case the size of the macroscopic elements is defined by the physically infinitesimal volume.
