Лев Шестов – наш современник
The terrible tension of the philosophy of the Shestov tragedy is more than preserved today: it’s impossible to decide on a riot, it can be unbearable to refuse a riot. Yes, rebellion leads to the fact that a person loses everything and, above all, himself, but what if there is no strength to endure and put up? Yes, Shestov’s revolt and Pugachev’s revolt are, ultimately, of the same order, but where is the strength to curb and overcome their revolt (unless, of course, it is not the power of torture and execution)? It is unlikely that these problems will ever get a solution - perhaps, as long as we are aware of their significance until they stop torturing us, we can continue our joint cultural life without losing either human dignity or a human face.

The main focus of this paper is the relation between the realisation of the right of the child to express his/her views and democracy in Russia. With this in view, I will study the interconnection between the right to express the views and the right to participate. Further, I will give an overview of the specifics of democracy in Russia, how they influence political participation, and what could be done to prevent the further infantilisation of citizens in Russia. Finally, I will explore traditional perceptions with regard to children’s participation in Russia and the legal framework and practice of the implementation of the child’s right to social and political participation.
