The Tsars never really disappeared.  They just changed titles.

Russia has always been a nation ruled by a strongman, be it a king, Tsar, Khan, Premier, or now President.

For some reasons, the Russians prefer it.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton
