Nevertheless, the Russian Theosophical Society has abolished office of 
president to prevent misuse of power. (RTS was not connected to 
Adyar). It drove us much nearer to the real brotherhood, as for the 
last several years all the clashes were over.

The difference is that Adyar has big property which should be managed. 
Yet the board of directors can do it well.
The previous president of RTS has hijacked all the property, so, there 
is nothing to manage. But the main idea was that there should no 
ideological leader. We have chairman, yes, but she is just keeping 
order at the meetings, ringing the bell, and her duties end with the 
end of meetings. The rest of the time she works in the firemen 
department of the Moscow subway.

Another advantage is that now we are no way a body any way opposed to 
TS Adyar and are just a group of people some of which are F.T.S.
