It is interesting that the "invitation" was sent to both Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna and to Prince Dmitri Romanovich. This suggests that both them are equally regarded as representatives of the former Imperial House.

The Romanov family's extraordinary return would not threaten the rule of the Kremlin strongman but would aim to give them a role in unifying Russia.

The move proposed by Vladimir Petrov, a law maker from Putin's party, has prompted speculation that it has the Russian leader's direct approval.

Petrov also plans to introduce a law, which would be implemented by the centenary of the end of Imperial rule, which would "give the Royal family members a special status" and "stimulate their return to Russia".

The legislator has written letters to the heirs of the Romanov dynasty, which ruled the country for two centuries before the abdication of last Tsar Nicholas II ahead of two revolutions in 1917.

You are absolutely right. Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna was not the only one, who got the invitation. So the discussion could be moved into "Monarchy and Restoration; Rival Families and Claimants" thread.

The comments on this news are casutic. Commenters describe the current crop of the Romanovs as spongers and freeloaders.

I don't think this has anything to do with restoration. Just widow dressing. If I lived in Spain, going to Russia would be the last thing I would do. I have been there.

And you trust those guarantee. She is not being invited back to take part in government. Just some sort of window dressing.

At 89 years of age, Dimitri Romanovich is unlikely to give this offer much consideration. The chancellory of Maria Vladimirovna also reacted with diplomacy and a hint of reticence to the news.

I fail to see the connection between President Putin and the invitations by one of the United Russia party members. "United Russia" is a large organisation. Baseless assumption and speculations are amusing though.

Romanov's Return To Russia?

Dimitri Romanovich Romanov has stated that he does not intend to consider the proposal of MP Vladimir Petrov regarding the return of the Romanov family to Russia.

Romanov emphasizes that he has lived his whole life abroad; he has resided in Denmark for many years time.

Yes, it is indeed, especially if you consider that it was just a proposal by a member of the Russian Parliament, but nothing concrete.

Indeed the proposal is not taken serious as can be read in this BT article: Prinsen fra Rungsted har fået tilbudt et russisk slot - Danmark | www.bt.dk

Super HQ pic of Dimitrij Romanov: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...manoffjpg.jpeg
At his present home in the posh part of Copenhagen, Rungsted.

He says to the Danish Conservative newspaper, Berlingske: "It cannot be considered an official approach. I cannot that it is serious. I cannot relate what is hypothetical"

The historian Oleg Budnitskij says about the proposal: "It's unthinkable. The monarchists have very little backing.
The proposal should rather be seen as an attempt to keep alive the memory of past splendor. For better or for worse there is an ongoing rediscovery of this period in the country's history".
