According to the author, Russian Orthodox Church is faced with the problem of adaptation to a secular character of Russian politics. Having rejected participation in electoral campaigns and support of any ideology, the Church had accepted secularity of party activity long before it was inscribed in the 1995 law on parties prohibiting confessionalism in party life.
As for the parties, just few of them try to adjust party ideology to traditional religious values. Common projects of action just start to be elaborated on the basis of common public positions of parties and religious organizations. The author believes that there is no party today with clear vision of what policy towards religious associations they are to stand for.
