Abstract

On the basis of the scandalous arrest of the head of the Komi Republic regional case of the weakening of political and social institutions was analysed. According to the author, these problems are directly linked to the failure of political modernization and democratization in Russia with a substantial weakening of feedback between society and government, and, in particular, the difficulty for sociologists to diagnose and warn about emerging social problems.
