The manifesto “Right and Truth”, taken as the basis of the party’s program “For Our Homeland”, consists of 63 pages. In the document Mikhalkov states that “the euphoria of liberal democracy is over” and the modern public system consisting of corruption, arbitrariness of the authorities and attempts to catch up with the West does not support most Russian citizens. This Manifesto was criticized by a number of experts. So MGIMO professor Andrey Zubkov called Mikhalkov’s work “a banal bid to legitimize the authoritarian regime in the interests of the Soviet elite.”
Supporters of the party “For Our Motherland”, on the contrary, fully share Nikita Mikhalkov’s views. In their view, during the 1917 revolution our country lost its previous spirit and previous great ideas that existed before the coup d’état. And the lost must be recovered. Among other famous persons whose position is supported by the political structure, prominent personalities of the Bolshevik uprising of 1917 are philosopher Nikolay Berdyaev, politician Pyotr Struev, priest Pavel Florensky .
After the new party finishes registering regional offices, it will be able to take part in elections, but according to Mikhail Rybakov, a member of the presidium of the political council of the party “For Our Motherland”, the organization isn’t going to get anywhere elected anytime soon. Their main goal is to revive traditional values in Russia. Nikita Mikhalkov in party “For Our Motherland” still doesn’t consist and, as they say in its press – service, isn’t going to enter there.
