Slavic Native Faith in Russia is widespread, according to some estimates from research organisations which put the number of Russian Rodnovers in the millions.

Slavic Native Faith and mono-ideologies
Slavic Native Faith and mono-ideologies

In its own view of history, Rodnovery is destined to supplant what Rodnovers call the "mono-ideologies", whose final bankruptcy the world is now witnessing. By "mono-ideologies", they mean all those ideologies which promote "universal and one-dimensional truths", unable to grasp the complexity of reality and therefore doomed to failure one after the other.

Slavic Native Faith's theology and cosmology

Slavic Native Faith has a theology that is generally monistic, consisting in the vision of an absolute, supreme God (Rod) who begets the universe and lives as the universe (pantheism and panentheism), present in all its phenomena. Polytheism, that is the worship of the gods or spirits, and ancestors, the facets of the supreme Rod generating all phenomena, is an integral part of Rodnovers' beliefs and practices.
