Alexey P. Anisimov, Vyacheslav N. Gulyaikhin

The aim of the article is to prove influence of philosophical doctrines of Slavophiles and Westernizers of the XXIth century on Russian political-legal life in the second decade of the XXIth century. The modern government propaganda applies ideas of unity of tsar and nation, “specific way” of the Russian, and uselessness of human rights in order to secure interests of Russian political elite.
