Analyzing the situation in Russia on the basis of the leading conceptions of the modern transitology the author comes to the conclusion that neither the notion of "democrature", nor that of "delegative democracy" is applicable to this situation. In his opinion, the minimal or procedural democracy has been already formed in Russia. At the same time he notes that, in view of the lack of the very party system or the analogous structure, the basis of the transformation, that has already been realized considerably on the central level, is rather flimsy. According to the author, the progress of the political transformation in Russia depends on the course of the representative and behavioral transformation and on the successful development of civil society.
