On September 21, 2021, within the framework of the seminar "West and East: Universalism of Culture" academic supervisor of the laboratory Professor Leonid Luks made a report
The report examined the pan-European context of the crisis of the "first" Russian democracy. The idea of the inevitability of the revolutionary crisis that began in February was subjected to critical examination. The speaker emphasized that despite the fact that Russian society made an unequivocal socialist choice in 1917, this choice was not tantamount to a totalitarian choice, on the contrary, most Russians saw the socialist idea at that moment as a democratic idea.
