Palabras clave:

conservatism, archaization, modernization, public administration, russian society, neopatrimonialism


The article explores the foundations of conservative trends in Russian politics. The manifestation of conservative tendencies is seen in the very nature of the neo-patrimonial political regime prevailing in post-Soviet Russia, and in the legitimizing ideology on which it is based. The formation of the neopatrimonial regime and its ideological foundations are considered as a manifestation of the archaization of Russian society, which also manifests itself in the strengthening of the role of religion in Russian society; while religiosity itself has a certain specificity, which makes it possible to talk about the presence of archaizing tendencies within the framework of religious consciousness.
