    That would be interesting to read about. It does explain some of Putin's odd actions, such as the clamp down on the gay community (defender of the faith) and the nurturing of his cult of personality (divine right).

    Yes, I could goggle, but I am assuming you have some good sources in mind when you wrote your comment.

      Here's a link, but the article is two-and-one-half years old. If you can read Russian or another Slavic language like Bulgarian or Serbian you will be able to find more current articles and blog posts.

      I have Russian, Bulgarian, Ukrainian, and Serbian friends. The church I attend is an offshoot of the Russian Orthodox Church. I read Orthodox blogs and Church news from around the world. I know several priests, monks, and a Bishop as well as recent émigrés. My knowledge of the Tzarist movement comes from those sources. You'd be surprised how many Orthodox Christians would welcome a reestablishment of the Russian Monarchy, but they don't necessarily want it to be Romanov. They want a strong defender of the faith. And it wouldn't be the first time in Russian history that a Tzar was selected from outside the royal lineage.
