Is Russia moving back to Communism?

When I think about how Vladimir Putin is recognizing Hamas as legitimate, denying that they're a terrorist organization, and inviting them for talks in Moscow, I have to wonder: unless they'd never left Communism behind, is Russia moving back to it now?

Opinions may vary, but I have a feeling that, unless Russia's population can effectively protest Putin's positions, that US, Israeli and European relations with the former (returning?) USSR may be on their way to souring.
