Prince Vladimir in the tenth century received the baptism himselfand baptized Kievan Rus. From this time began in Russia Orthodox history. The rulers of Russia, the presidents of Russia in different historical epochs and under different systems of government of society succeeded each other, leaving their mark on her fate.
It is known that historical facts are always severaldistorted depending on political events. And sometimes, as today's realities show, attempts are made to rewrite history beyond recognition. There is an impression that the rulers of Russia and the USSR, the presidents of Russia, are being presented for people outside our state in a completely different, distorted and unattractive light. The Great Patriotic War is renamed textbooks in the Second World War, the significance of the Soviet Union in the defeat of Hitler's Germany is diminished as much as possible, and the Ukrainian authorities call for fascism and communism and declare that the Soviet Union attacked Europe and not liberated it from fascism.
The same goes for statesmen.
Were there everlasting prince feuds in Rus onReally? Did Ivan the Terrible kill the son, how do the textbooks tell about this? And who was Emelyan Pugachev? Did Peter the First return from Europe, or was it not he already?
Perhaps someday it will be reliably known, what were the people standing at the state rudder and deciding where and how the country will move.
Are you interested in the rulers of Russia, the Soviet Union, the presidents of Russia? List by order of heads of state can easily be found in history textbooks.
The Romanovs came to the Russian throne inthe sixteenth century and ruled by Russia before the 1917 revolution, when the monarchical system came to its end, and the long-awaited communist hastened to replace it.
Probably, to this day the Russian people can notto give a full assessment of all the events that were going on during the years of Soviet power. Until now, there have been irreconcilable arguments about the contribution of Lenin and Stalin to the destiny of the state. But the fact that under Gorbachev, the first and last president of the USSR, a huge country has ceased to exist, probably no one doubts.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia predictedan unenviable future, and some Western opponents certainly built plans for dismemberment of a weakened country. But the incredible happened. The state became stronger, he had a bright and strong leader, and people cheered up. Once again, predatory plans to destroy the largest country in the world failed.
The collapse of the USSR occurred in 1991. The newest Russian history is very young, and the list of presidents of Russia in order at it is quite small, only three surnames. It:
Yeltsin B.N. came to power in 1991 and ruled the country until 1999. Politicians still give an ambiguous assessment of his rule. Then, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, troubled times, dashing nineties, crimson jackets and gold chains came. The Russians experienced a predatory privatization, or "prihvatizatsiyu", as it was called among the people. There was a solid, insolent, bandit class of oligarchs.
List of Presidents of Russia in order continuedV.V. Putin, who succeeded Yeltsin in this post. He also had to deal with the oligarchic class. During his reign, the Chechen wars broke out, terrorist acts, the death of the Kursk submarine and many other problems that the national leader methodically coped with, although he received an ambiguous popular assessment of his actions. He ruled the state for two presidential terms in a row, from 2000 to 2008, but, contrary to expectations and revision of the Constitution for permission to run for a third term, he refused this opportunity.
From the ruling United Russia party to powercame Dmitry Medvedev, who ruled the state from 2008 to 2012. And the list of Russian presidents has been supplemented by one more name. V.V. At that time, Putin was appointed prime minister.
In 2012, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin was again elected President of Russia.
The role of the personality of the ruler in the history of the state,probably, it is impossible to overestimate. He embodies the face of the people of the whole country, which rules. And there are pages in its history that you want to stay for a long time and think about those state leaders thanks to which the country has changed for the better, and people living in it were especially acutely aware of the importance of the historical moment and the invaluable contribution that the ruler and national leader. If you look through the list of presidents of Russia in order, it will be found that such a statesman in Russia appeared at the turn of the millennia. And there is today.
