OUR GOAL. The main goal of the YABLOKO

WHY ARE WE RUNNING FOR PARLIAMENT?

tasks up to 2018: participation in elections and support
of protest actions
Press Release, January 27,
Participation in elections, as well as the
organisation and support of civil protest actions
are the priorities for the YABLOKO party for the period
2013 – 2018. Such a decision was taken at yesterdays’
meeting of YABLOKO Bureau held in Moscow.
"Our country has been experiencing
a systemic crisis: that of the legitimacy of power,
legitimacy of large-scale private property, public
confidence in the government and the political system
in general," runs a special statement of the
Bureau on the objectives of the party in the long
YABLOKO must respond to the systemic
crisis of the legitimacy with formulation of a clear
political platform of the democratic opposition, which
can base on YABLOKO’s programme that has been
developed during decades on the basis of European
democratic values. "It is clear for us that the
nationalist and the radical left (Stalinist) assessments
and proposals [for the further development] are dangerous
for the country, and therefore unacceptable,"
emphasizes the Bureau.
YABLOKO is going to take part in the next key election
campaigns: to nominate their candidates for the presidential
elections and the mayoral elections in Moscow, and
register lists of candidates for the parliamentary
elections and the Moscow City Duma elections...

Most respected Vladimir
For many years Yabloko
association has been preoccupied with the resolution
of one of the most acute problems of Russian society
– the problem of military reform. Four years ago the
first President of Russia, Boris Yeltsin, promised
Russian citizens that from 2000 onwards our army would
be built on a contract basis, and that the military
conscription system would be a relic of the past.
His words remained mere words.

The situation in
Russia has become increasingly tense. There are hundreds
of thousands of refugees in the Northern Caucasus;
there is the threat of a wide-scale partisan war in
winter, an increase in civilian casualties, and the
provocation of conflicts between the military and
the civil leadership of the country owing to unclear
political prospects in Chechnya all this becomes a
serious factor behind political destabilisation.

Yabloko has consistently
advocated a union between Russia and Byelorussia.
At the same time we have our differences with other
political parties (the CPRF, "Our Home is Russia"
and others) over the form and strategy of the integration
of Russia and Byelorussia.
We consider the following
three positions to be of utmost importance:
