What does a simple Russian man need the Parliament for? Which Duma is better – today’s or the Tsar’s? And what about Stalin’s Supreme Soviet? Why did Yeltsin shot the Russian White House? Why did Ivan the Terrible drowned Velikiy Novgorod in blood? Who is right? Those who say that Russians - are Asians, and that democracy for them is like a nail inside a shoe or a bone in their throat, or is it those who try to prove that the sovereignty of the people in Russia is six centuries older than the tsars?
