Can Influence Politics: An Interview with Grigory Yavlinsky
Grigory Yavlinsky is the head of the “Yabloko”
party in Russia -- a party that has been described as decidedly
liberal in its outlook. Yavlinsky is a former economist,
and was a candidate for the Russian presidency in 1996,
an election in which he finished with less than 10% . He
is expected to be a key player --whether as a candidate
or not -- in Russia’s 2000 elections.
Yavlinsky was born in the Ukrainian city of Lvov in 1952.
He became deputy director of the Council of Ministers of
the Russian Federation -- when it was still part of the
USSR -- in 1991.

Grigory Yavlinsky: The main purpose of the
visit of the President of the United States to Moscow was
to discuss issues related to the anti-missile defence system.

Clinton until the elections in the US, and then with the
new President of the United States.

Grigory Yavlinsky: I would like to stress
that today the other resolutions [of the Chechen problem]
that we witness in Russia are based on violence, rather
than negotiations. This is demonstrated not only in the
Northern Caucasus: it can be easily seen even in the State
Duma, when the Kremlin and its allies, the communists, decide
the key issues behind the formation of the structure of
the State Duma for the long term.
