Vladimir Putin wants to reinstate the Romanov Dynasty

Vladimir Putin has made the unlikely move of expressing “his desire” to reinstate the Russian royal family, leading commentators to suggest that Putin wants a Russian version of Kate Middleton, whose star quality and mass appeal he can exploit for his own Machiavellian means.

The Express reports that Putin’s lawmaker, Vladimir Petrov, has written directly to heirs of the Romanov dynasty, who lorded over Russia for 200 years.

The Romanov’s rule came to an end when Tsar Nicholas was forced to abdicate due to years of injustice and the mounting pressures of World War I.

I suppose that whole 80 years Russian Revolution was just a hiccup -- bygones be will be bygones, even for former KGB agents of the far removed Soviet Union? Time to dust off the Romanov Dynasty...
