Thus the right is used as the instrument of strengthening non-democratic regime. The Stalinism, compound of Bolshevism and the Black Hundreds endures the Renaissance period. The irrationalism and conspiracy theories prosper. A number of famous politicians and experts assume the possibility of «big» war. The future of the country becomes more and more unpredictable.


Russia, democratic transit, rights, freedom, Stalinism, authoritarianism.
