This paper examines how liberal political theory addresses the issue of ethnocultural diversity in Russia. Russian liberals are still in the early stage of efforts to articulate a vision of post-Soviet Russia. Slow to liberate itself from the legacy of the Soviet system, the culture relies on the language of institutionalised ethnicity, ethnic federalism, and ethnic group rights. Built on assumptions of ascribed status, collectivism, and primordialism, Russia’s current political culture provides not fertile soil for the adoption of Kymlicka’ model of liberal pluralism.
