The main feature of modern Russian history, which has affected heritage management, is the absence of political and developmental continuity. This can be traced to heritage management's swift development during the nineteenth century, which was interrupted by the political events of 1917. The formation of heritage management during the Soviet period of Russian history took place, but it was developed within the context of specific political and economic conditions of the Soviet state. The history of heritage management in Soviet Russia can be considered the history of good intentions. This chapter provides an historical account of cultural heritage management in Russia with a focus on the current laws and practices for preservation of Russia's cultural heritage.
