Abstract

The rise of nationalism in Putin’s Russia Alexander Verkhovsky 1 The problem of political nationalism, especially radical nationalism, from the very first moment of the collapse of the Soviet Union, became one of the most discussed questions concerning Russia. A great deal was written on this topic; nevertheless, the interest in the topic is still alive. On the other hand, political life in Russia in the middle of this decade is so very different from the 1990s, that the place and role of nationalism could not remain the same. That is why it is impossible to limit oneself to what has been previously written. First of all, it is important to explain that the question concerns Russian ethnic nationalism and not any other form of nationalism. Of course there are different forms of ethnic nationalism in Russia, but their peak occurred at the start of the 1990s and ended a long time ago. They have totally exhausted their mobilizing potential, since regional separatism has long ceased to be any kind of real goal, and the mechanisms of autonomy have been learned and ‘privatized’ by regional elites, most of which are moderately ethnocratic. The topic of cultural renaissance reached
