From the point of view of General scientific methods (historicism, analysis and synthesis), the paper investigates the political situation in the Russian Empire, which is reflected in the discussions of the deputies of the first four State Duma on the political structure of Russia and the formation of the Supreme normative act-the Constitution-in a complex socio-political situation in the country. Results. The author comes to the conclusion that the lateness of the reforms, the vectors of political forces, the lack of consensus between the autocracy and the liberals-but the configured part of the population has led to the tragic events of re-involution of 1917.
