Could Donald Trump ‘s latest ally become the next constitutional monarchy in the world? According to one top Putin cleric the possibility isn’t exactly entirely far fetched. According to reports, Vsevolod Chaplin a top Putin cleric and aid to Russia, has made the proposal that Russia return to the Romanov Dynasty.
‘We are a country with monarchic mentality,’ he said, at the launch of his new book.
‘It doesn’t matter that we don’t now have formal monarchy, I think we can re-make it with Putin on top.
‘Or else with somebody from the Romanov house, or with an elected person as head.’
He insisted: ‘While we don’t have formal monarchy, we have monarchic understanding that Russia cannot be without a tsar.
‘But this tsar must take advice from people, which is why having a nation is so important.’
