Yes, monarchism used to be quite popular in Russia, especially among the Russian nationalists.
But now we are perceived as crazy. And the terrible and bloody times of the Jewish Communist occupation misses most of the population. These scum are not worthy to be called Russian. They are an unbeaten neosoviet nation.
But among young people, right-wing ideologies are rapidly gaining popularity. Especially Russian Orthodox nationalism. And it pleases, you just have to remember that two years ago everywhere in my city there were those who were ridiculously (and, of course, at the direction of the Jews) trying to be like Western alt-raites, libertarians and left-liberals.
What about french nation? How much grief we have endured over the 20th century. And what a touching friendship was between Russia and France! And what cultural ties! For example, we still have a lot of respect for Jules Verne (almost all Russians read "The children of Captain Grant").
Why don't you like the British? We are, of course, for the fact that they are the most unbearable, most unreasonably proud people of Western Europe. And you?
You know, I really love Russia. This is not ironic. All these plains, meadows and rivers with commieblocks and terrible factories forever in my heart, but I happen to think: it would be nice to be born in France or Italy! So I imagine myself a winemaker in Bordeaux, which has its own ancient specialty of wine, a winery for several hectares, a large cellar with rats, a three-story wooden house and a beautiful wife, an Occitan. Is everything so romantic in France now, as I imagine?
