Abstract: 

This paper focuses on the changes in Russian federal system, after the disintegration of the Soviet Union. Yeltsin had created some kind of coalition with the regions’ governments to confront Gorbachev's power and after the independence of Russia, he continued this policy. He had established a kind of real distribution of power with the regions of the Russian Federation, which the Constitution approved it. However, the process of increasing demands of the regions for more autonomy created the fear of repetition of the collapse of the Soviet Union scenario. Based on the condition made by the spread of terrorist attacks and aforementioned factor, Putin tried to make Russia's political- administrative structures centralized again. In this essay, the author examines the policies of these two leaders of Russia, in dealing with the challenges of democratization and federalism in this country.
