The author attempts to determine the distinguishing features of the post-Soviet Russian conservatism and its main currents. According to his conclusion, the modern Russian conservatism has two most important cleavages. The first one is between right (“white”) and left (social) conservatives, the second one – between “spontaneous” (emerging as a result of citizens’ self-organization from below) and “bureaucratic” (formed “from above”) conservatism. Having analyzed the tendencies of the development of the politically shaped conservatism in the post-communist Russia, B.Mantikov comes to the conclusion that over the last 20 years “spontaneous” conservatism is being steadily removed from the political stage and replaced by the “bureaucratic” one.
