Russia is just another one of those republics that are really monarchies pretending to be republics. In fact, there have been discussions about
restoring the Romanovs, Putin of course would remain as prime minister for life. IIRC there is a small, but very active movement that wishes to
restore the monarchy in Russia. The Russian government as well has been "glorifying" the Tsarist era. The Russian Army's new dress uniforms are
almost identical to those that were introduced by Tsar Nicolas II in 1912.
