Abstract

The article examines the main characteristics of the institutional structure of Russia: its historical origin and modern features. The attention is drawn to two opposite approaches: Russia is moving in the general stream of modernization, or it is going along a special path opposing the institutions of rule of law. The clashes between Moscovia and the Great Duchy of Lithuania in the past were interpreted as a confrontation between two incompatible civilization: the Asian (state) mode of production and the lawbased society. Six main qualities of the presence institutional core (the matrix of Muscovy) are singled out along with the role of culture as an informal institution and its decisive influence on the development and the countries prospects.

KeywordsMatrix of Muscovia, institutional core, law-based culture, potestary culture, mental models, traditional society of the modern type, samovlastie (authoritarianism), power-property, service state, estate society, administrative rent
