The majority of Russians (68%) against the monarchical form of government and is considered the most suitable for the Republic of Russia, wrote on Thursday the newspaper “Izvestia” referring to the poll of All-Russian Center for Public Opinion (VTsIOM).
The head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov said earlier that Russia considers necessary for a new form of government – monarchy. According to him, the Russian Federation should be unity of command: because the country has an external enemy, the president should be more right, “up to the dictatorship.” Later, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Putin “not optimistic” refers to such proposals, and Aksenov “free to express personal opinion.”
Later on the air of the TV channel “Russia 24” Aksenov explained that his words about the return of the monarchy in Russia were taken out of context; He is not in favor of a change in the constitutional order, but in favor of lifelong powers for President Putin.
“According to sociologists, in 2006, 66% of Russian citizens spoke out against the monarchical form of government, and 67% in 2013. In 2017, the percentage of opponents of autocracy increased again and amounted to 68% … The most suitable form of government for Russia is the republic – so 88% of respondents answered, “the results of the poll lead the publication.
As the newspaper writes, “in principle, not against” the transfer of power by inheritance of 22% of respondents, but so far they do not see in Russia a person suitable for the role of a monarch. In the opinion of 6% of respondents, there is such a person in the country.

However, 50% of the respondents favoring the monarchy found it difficult to answer the question why they are for the restoration of the monarchical form of government.
“The Soviet generations resist this much more strongly than young people, for whom the monarchical form of government is permissible … In the minds of young people, the monarchy is not opposed to freedom and democracy, it attracts them with its rationality and efficiency.It is possible that the” anti-monarchy vaccination “of the Soviet period will cease to function through the generation “, – the newspaper quotes the director of the research department of All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center Stepan Lvov.
