Vladimir S. Malakhov outlines state-sponsored efforts to create a civic nation-state, which Gleb Pavlovskii and others have called "The Russian Project." The author points out that the multicultural, multiethnic, and multiconfessional legacies of "Rossiia"* [Russia] make it extraordinarily difficult to change the meaning of the ethnonational term "Russian." Based on diverse United States and European histories, and despite their mixed experiences of immigrant incorporation, he advocates a return to the credibility of the term "multicultural." Toward this end, he suggests that the multiethnic meaning of "Rossiia" is being restored as the best defense against Russian chauvinist nationalism.
