Kremlin’s new ally

gyGrigory Yavlinsky on the dangerous partnership between Russia and Saudi Arabia and “Putin’s political post-modernism”, 09.10.2017
Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs already called the meeting between Putin and Saudi Arabia’s King an epochal event. It is true that the President of Russia met another civilization, the feudal epoch, in the Kremlin. This is probably the reason why the meeting was characterized as epochal. Putin’s Russia is immersing in this epoch, in feudalism, deeper and deeper. Recently Saudi Arabia was Russia’s gravest enemy, and now the “friendly” relations between the countries that suddenly intensified are as exotic as dangerous. Read more »

Promoting LGBT+ rights in Russia: The liberal view

LI_70_anniversary_logoLiberal International, 13.10.2017
By Nikolai Kavkazsky, member of YABLOKO Federal Council, lawyer of the Stimul Moscow LGBT+ Initiative Group and Board member of the “For the Civil Rights” Committee
After Vladimir Putin came to power, the situation with human rights in Russia began to steadily deteriorate. Repressive laws were adopted, many independent media outlets were closed, political and human rights organisations found themselves subject to intense pressure, an administrative resource has been used in elections and voting results have often been falsified. Thousands of political prisoners are in prisons convicted for their participation in peaceful actions and commentaries in social networks. The authorities even resort to political murders of their opponents. Simultaneously, the ruling regime has been fueling hatred against the dissenting and LGBT+ with the help of television propaganda.

Leaders of Yabloko’s regional branches on the dismissal of governors and show election

Press release, 10.10.2017

Today the President of Russia Vladimir Putin has dismissed another governor – Pavel Konkov, the Ivanovo Region. He is the 10th governor to be dismissed within the last two weeks. It seems likely that the provisional governors appointed by the Kremlin will go through the election procedure without leaving any alternative and will proceed with their obligations on a regular basis. The election itself will take the form of a referendum on trust – a real competition for the votes is almost nowhere to be expected. The appointees are mainly the so called “young technocrats”, whose will is tested by jumping off a cliff. This type of officials is gradually excluding the “political heavyweights” of 1990s and “effective managers” of 2000s from the gubernatorial field. However, we can hardly expect any changes in the absence of political competition. This is why Yabloko and Grigory Yavlinsky, Yabloko’s presidential candidate, initiated the collection of signatures for the return of direct elections of mayors, governors and members of the Federation Council – without any restrictions or filters. The initiative was launched on the change.org website. Direct elections are one of the key points of Yavlinsky’s presidential electoral programme.

The slogan says: ‘I want to vote myself’

Grigory Yavlinsky: What is good for Angela Merkel, is not good for…

Politicians have to win the votes of electorate in a fair competition in the system where Angela Merkel acts

Grigory Yavlinsky web-site, 25.09.2017

merkel

Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel will head her country for the fourth time in a row. Does it represent irremovability of power? And what about corruption? And why does Germany have no corruption on such a scale like in Russia then? The reasons are obvious: [Germany has] fair elections, civil control, separation of powers, independent media and independent financing. But there are also some important details.

Politicians have to win the votes of electorate in a fair competition in the system where Angela Merkel acts.

In Vladimir Putin’s system demonstrates a different practice: the Presidential Administration is tasked with making the election “cheerful and attractive” by finding necessarily a female candidate, or a left-wing candidate, or doing some other clownery (as in the Soviet era, when they had to mandatory nominate a milkmaid, a worker and a representative from the youth).
