Ratification of the Moscow Treaty by the Duma was widely expected and, in a sense, inevitable given the high interest of the government, including and especially President Putin, in that treaty.
Of greater interest is the contents of the documents approved by the Duma, in particular the greater role these documents accord to the legislature in the decisions on the future of the Russian nuclear forces and arms control policy.

At the same time, it is unlikely that there has ever been such a period of debate on the importance of reforms in all spheres of public life in the history of modern Russia as the past six months in the build-up to the elections.
The electorate as a whole should also be grateful after the attention was given to their fears that their right to vote would not be violated during the presidential campaign.

The third important and valuable idea expressed by Karl Kautsky is that about the Duma being a new centre, an important step forward in the organisation of the movement.
Those who want to judge the Bolsheviks by their resolutions, and not by what the Negorevs say about them, will see that there is no disagreement whatever between Kautsky and the Bolsheviks on the question of the State Duma.
