The authors analyze the data of nation-wide surveys of the 2000-s and trace changes in the attitude of various groups of the Russians towards Duma and the President election during these years, the dynamics and motives of participation in election and draw a conclusion that the functions of this democratic institution have undergone dramatic transformation during «Putin» period and it has actually turned into an obedient instrument of ritual acclamation of the working authorities. December 2011 Election to Duma is scrutinized most closely: the Russian population dispositions before the Election, motivation of participation and non-participation in electoral process, shifts in electorate of the major parties, the level of satisfaction and dissatisfaction with the results, Muscovites protest reaction to the Election results and the attitude of the country population to the protest actions in December 2011 – March 2012. Discussing the issue of justice, «transparency», honesty of the Election and the scale of its results falsification by and in the interests of the authorities, the authors raise the question of sociological typology of electoral behavior under specific conditions of totalitarian control over political sphere, the processes of parties’ formation, mass media activities in the absence of political and civil freedom of population.
