That's debatable, i wrote a research on this topic not too long ago. Although the communist party is no longer in control, it's modern doppelganger is, it's called the United Russia Party and it's controlled by Putin and Medvedev, both of whom were around and involved in the politics of the USSR, especially Putin who was in the KGB. There are many cases of journalist incarceration, supression of free speech/press/etc. and also it is widely believed that Russia still has quite a grudge against the west. I would say that Russia's main issue is not communism but it's the rift between it and the west that aligns it with countries like Iran. Unless there is a drastic change in leadership or policy then things are likely to remain as they are if not get worse. so to answer your question, no, but many of the same problems and grudges and issues still exist albeit in a different form.

Best Answer
