Today do any relatives of Tsar Nicholas II claim the right to rule Russia?

"Contrary to common belief, the Romanov family is far from extinct. The proper line of succession to the Russian throne is contested, but the Russian people have so far evidenced little popular support for the resurrection of a Russian monarchy, even on a constitutional basis."
This source shows there is a current claiment to the throne is Grand Duke Georgi Mihailovich
"Indeed, the family name of the current claimant to the Russian Imperial Throne, Grand Duke Georgi Mihailovich, should include the family name of his father: Hohenzollern-Holstein-Gottorp-Romanov. "Almanach de Gotha", however, hasn't introduced this change yet."
"The claimant to the Throne, Grand Duke Georgi Mihailovich, belongs to the "Alexandrovich" (or "Vladimirovich") line of the Romanov Family".
This question intrigued me as I poked around a bit more, so here are some other sites. If this is too extraneous feel free to remove this post. :)
From The St Petersburg times, an opinion piece on re-instating the Russian Monarchy:
A Russian heir commited suicide last year- ABC news
A (long) thread from a message board about royalty with lots of discussion about Romanov descendants.
