Director of the H.I.H. Chancellery Sir Alexander Zakatov gave interview to the most influential Russian information agency INTERFAX on 6 August 2009. Sir Zakatov answered to questions connected to recognition of the Russian Imperial House as the official historical institution by the current government of the Russian Federation.
Sir Zakatov told that Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna would like to return to Russia but she connects this decision to formal legal recognition of the Russian Imperial House by the government of the Russian Federation. Grand Duchess doesn't claim neither restitution of the property, nor appanage. She needs respect only not to her personally, but to the House headed by her and to its role in the Russian history.
Recognition of the Russian Imperial House doesn't mean automatically restoration of monarchy, Sir Zakatov emphasized.
