Russian Culture and Putin’s National Governance Model

Zhaozhen AN


Russian culture has both Eastern and Western cultural characteristics, and the internal structure of culture has distinct polarities. The main factors in the formation of Russian authoritarian culture are mainly the Russian economic system and ideological concepts. It is impossible to understand Russia with reason, cannot be measured by general standards, and there is something special there. During the Putin periods, the president’s power was further strengthened and “Sovereign Democracy “was implemented. The choice of Russia’s national governance model is followed by historical and realistic Russian cultural factors.
