In his opinion, policies without the backing of the people may not last long. In other words, he has more respect towards the people than his predecessors which is a good sign for the democratization of Russia. He has realized the necessity of glasnost for the progress of Russia. Even in communist China, the call for democracy is strengthening day by day. Under such circumstances, it is suicidal for Russia to embrace communism again.
