  • Decentralized Russia is gradually falling apart

    I see a lot of people saying that Russia suffered the first hand the horror of Communism. However, the History likes to repeat itself. It's like World War One, "A War to end All Wars" and yet even worse conflict split up the World just 21 years after. I guess as Russia will gradually, slowly falling apart the Communism has a high chance to come back. Russia lost control over the time, and while Communist Regime is horrible it holds people in place, force them to work or to suffer. Personally I am against Communism, but from what i see I wouldn't be surprised if we will see on the news that KPRF or other Communist Party will take over.

  • The one reason why the KPRF lost in that last election was a divided left

    Russia's official opposition part is the KPRF (Communist Party of the Russian Federation), they got approximately 19% of the vote, while Independent (another socialist party) got about 8% of the vote. The other consecutive parties (also socialist) got a combined value of 10%, a total combination of the socialist/communist vote was 37%. Putin's party United Russia got 63% of the vote. Yes, even when combining the votes Putin there is evidence of election fraud, in some provinces more than 100% of the population voted in favour of United Russia. As time goes on, KPRF and other socialist parties are slightly gaining votes. Over time it seems likely that if a coalition/merger were to happen United Russia would lose to the socialist parties. Therefore there is a high chance, in the future, that Russia could possibly become Communist. But that is not necessarily bad, I urge you to go to the KPRF's main site. You may find that they are far more progressive than other parties.

  • I think so

    The two parties in Russia that a really big at the moment is the Communist Party and the peoples Republic of Russia. The last election Vladimir Putin ran against the Communist Party. A new Cold War is growing. Vladimir Putin could be the president for the next 20 years .

  • Its all they have known for a good portion of the 20th century.

    The current president of the Russian federation is Vladimir Putin as we are all aware. Life in the U.S.S.R want as bad as most Americans make it out to be. In the soviet education system they only attended school for 10 years and learned more than most Americans do in our 12.

  • Many red flags are being displayed in Russia.

    A combination of leftists in Russia could push Russia back to many of
    the practices of Soviet Russia though church attendance will still be tolerated. The head to the Russian Communist Party recently said that
    scripture and communism can be compatible. SOme have said that
    Jesus Christ was the ultimate communist man.

  • Freedom of people.

    People want to be free, not bound by some corrupt neo-liberalist state that oppresses them with financial pressure instead of phyiscal force, people attempt to down-talk communism like it's a bad thing, yet how many of these people have ever actually read into it. It looks good on paper, and it's good in practice.

  • Damn Yeah baby!

    The Russian Government has been tasking over Eastern Ukraine and has possibly the world's greatest weapon. The bromine atomic bomb launches 1,000 times more power than a nuclear missile. It can even destroy the entire state of Delaware. The Russians will not only start a WWIII, they will try to end try to end the world

  • Yes, and soon

    The only way Russia will return to the grand empire it once was the country will need to switch back to communism. Communism can be a very beneficial form of government if shaped right. I believe this time around the new united union of socialist republics will be even more successful then it's predecessor.

  • There President is ex-KGB

    They are also ready to invade Ukraine and has no respect for the U.S. they are going against the NATO alliance along with there ex-KGB president he grew up hating everything about America he was taught communism was the way Russia will end up taking some sort of form of a communist government.

  • Sooner than what we thought

    The laws against pro-gay activists are horrible. It's a way to stop citizens from expressing their ideas. The Russian government is oppressing its citizens and if regimes around the world don't stop this political war it can lead to another world war, I hope governments come together to create a peaceful environment for all people on earth.

  • Well, read democracy then

    The second most voted party in Russia is the Communist Party, and if you look at the results of the last general election - Putin's win was what many would consider a narrow one. As the Russian arms industry mounts on to its decline, (the main source of income along with oil and natural gas for the Russian economy) so will its present state of economics, and as history tells us - what does a declining economy lead to? A surge of far-left / far-right parties, no doubt would a presence of both in Russia manipulate the significance Russia had on the world during its Soviet days, leading many to re-evaluate their current political positions. This revival of the Soviet Union has already started.

  • It's bound to happen sometime

    It's only a matter of time before the massively influential communist China influences the majority of Russians, whose country is destined to be governed by a communist party, as it is the country's true nature- a system that perfectly fits the vast territory to be worked, and social inequalities.

  • Russia Learned its Lesson

    I don't think they're going back to communism. Just because Russia's taken over a few countries, it doesn't mean they're communist again. They may just want more territory. They should have learned their lesson from the Cold War. At this point, I think Russia's just wanting more land. They're not communist just because they took over a few cities in Ukraine. Most of you may think of communism as the Russians when they were against they US and they were "bad." Communism is advocacy of a classless society in which private ownership has been abolished and the means of production and subsistence belong to the community (copied from dictionary.Com). It's just a type of economy (a not very good one at that).

  • Communism is Basically Dead

    When the Soviet Union collapsed under its own weight in 1991, the largest Communist experiment in the world went with it. China is communist to an extent, but that country is more socialist than communist now. Even Cuba has softened its stances over the years, much like China. Russia isn't going back to the way it once was. China will make sure of that.

  • A return to communism seems doubtful.

    While communism is good in theory, it has repeatedly failed in practice. The country has experienced this first hand and it seems unlikely that the ever expanding younger generation will allow the sentiments of the past to repeat itself. Democracy has become more prevalent in the modern era, even if it just a polite term for "capitalism."

  • No, I don't believe so

    The fact that the USSR collapsed in 1991 gives me reason to believe that the Russians will be hesitant about becoming communist again. I think there is a chance that they do, but I believe that there is a greater chance that they do not. I think they would evaluate their history first.

  • No, they won't.

    No, I don't think Russia will be communist again. For a long time now it seems that people view Russia as a communist country, when they haven't been in a long time. They have no reason to go back to communism, especially with the people being the ones making the decisions.
