I would like to agree with you, but I doubt if the KPRF is very diferent from the chauvinist Unit Party. They doesn't seem to take socialism seriously. Instead they seem to be only a nationalist Party nostalgic from USSR superpower status. In fact, they simply couldn't offer an alternative to Putin's policy and supported the war on Chechnya even more fanatically then their right wing counterparts
