Question by Lady L: How do the Russians currently feel about the Romanov family?
And were the Romanovs to blame for all that was happening to the people of Russia at the time? Did they mean to let many peasants starve and die?
Answer by armouror
i would say that the are sorry they were Murdered
and there is No evidence that the Tsar was to blame for Any deaths due to Mother Nature
the People insisted that the Romanov’s be buried in Peters Church with the Rest of the Russian Tsar’s
In 1981, Nicholas and his immediate family were recognised as martyred saints by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia. On 14 August 2000, they were recognised by the synod of the Russian Orthodox Church. This time they were not named as martyrs, since their deaths did not result immediately from their Christian faith; instead, they were canonized as passion bearers. According to a statement by the Moscow synod, they were glorified as saints for the following reasons:
In the last Orthodox Russian monarch and members of his family we see people who sincerely strove to incarnate in their lives the commands of the Gospel. In the suffering borne by the Royal Family in prison with humility, patience, and meekness, and in their martyrs deaths in Yekaterinburg in the night of 17 July 1918 was revealed the light of the faith of Christ that conquers evil.
However, Nicholas’s canonization was controversial. The Russian Orthodox Church Abroad was split on the issue back in 1981, some members suggesting that the emperor was a weak ruler and had failed to prevent the outbreak of Communism in Russia. It was pointed out by one priest that martyrdom in the Russian Orthodox Church has nothing to do with the martyr’s personal actions but is instead related to why he or she was killed
In fact some today would Like t have a Monarchy so do some people In France
they want one Like Spain or the UK someone to remain dignified whilst the elected Idiot politicians argue and call each other Names

No, of course not. Some of the Romanovs were bad rulers, which is what you get when you have an absolute monarchy. But some of them were good.
Tsar Nicholas II was pretty much railroaded by his generals into going to war in 1914, as was his good friend Kaiser Wilhelm II (the two men were exchanging letters signed as “Willy” and “Nicky” during the crisis right before the war, trying to get their Austrian and Serbian allies to come to an agreement and not force them into a war). The Russian and German generals insisted their rulers agree to mobilize for war because they feared the other side getting a jump on them, and both the Tsar and the Kaiser eventually relented.
The war caused a lot of suffering in Russia, but I wouldn’t lay it at the doorstep of the Romanovs at all. Russia was a huge country with a large population–possibly larger in 1917 than even today–and it didn’t have the infrastructure to feed so many people and wage a world war at the same time.
There are some Russians who would favor a restoration of the Romanovs, but not in their old role as “autocrat,” meaning absolute ruler. They favor a constitutional monarchy similar to the British model, in which the Tsar wouldn’t have all that much power. But at the current time, Russian monarchists are not a majority of the population. The vast majority of Russians respect the old royal family and regret the injustice that Lenin and the Bolsheviks did to them, however.

We do not feel ANYTHING about them. Just some pages in history book.
We do not care why they were killed, if they were good or bad etc…
And we pay MUCH less attention to Russian rulers than outside Russia. They lived/live on one planet, ordinary people live on the other planet. And planets do not cross their orbits.
