Locating ‘Conservative Ideology’ in Today’s Russia

Russia presents itself as a new conservative power, and promotes so-called conservative values. What does this term of ‘conservatism’ mean? Can it be considered as the Kremlin’s main political language? What are the main places of ‘production’ of this conservatism, who are its main spokespersons?
