In which country were political reforms more necessary — England in the 1640s or Russia in the 1690s?

There were much more feudal remnants in Russia in the 1690s than in England. They were so tenacious that Peter I did not try to destroy many of them (for example, serfdom), but adopted the absolutism he had renewed. So the tasks of revolutionary situations in England in the 1640s and in Russia in the 1690s were completely different, it is useless to compare them.
