When Putin Retires...

 

Alexander III (188194)

 
A convinced traditionalist
Rejected political change
Tried hard to limit the effect of the many reforms that had already been implemented under his father
The coercive apparatus of the state, including the secret police, was given unlimited prerogatives
Laws on local administration were revised in order to put zemstvos under the tight supervision of the central government
The popular press was subjected to rigorous censorship
These retrograde measures served merely to antagonise further the left-wing opposition
The radicals doctrines became ever more extreme
