Any political party needs clear and intelligible ideological program, which is different from programs of other political parties. Even this ideology will have titular value. Today there are three main ideologies in the modern world: socialism, liberalism and conservatism. Almost every political party defines itself in this coordinate system. During 2000th United Russia positioned itself like centrist power without strict ideology. Despite that, in this party, was traced some sympathy to conservatism. At 2009 on the XIth congress United Russia, which is the dominant party in Russia this days, proclaimed Russian Conservatism as ideology of party and concept of conservative modernization. This ideology become significant in political space this days.
