Recently Vladimir Putin published an article entitled “On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians”. President Putin has in the past published in his name policy articles dedicated to history and the national question. For example, in the run-up to his election in 2012. However, the meaning of the policy article penned ten years ago differed substantially from the view expressed in the current article. In the most recent text the ideal vision of Russia is no longer a mono-ethnic state, but instead a territory where historical and cultural boundaries should coincide with political borders.

The Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation accepted the case initiated by lawyer Alexander Kobrinsky in defence of the interests of the Yabloko deputies from the St. Petersburg municipality of Liteiny Okrug.

In 2019, 11 out of 20 mandates in the council of this municipality were taken by representatives of Yabloko, but it turned out that four days before the elections, a provision was made to the charter of the municipality stating that the head of the municipality is elected by a qualified, rather than a simple majority of votes of deputies. As a result, the duties of the head have remained with a pro-government United Russia deputy, elected by the previous convocation.

For the freedom of the people of Belarus!

Statement by the Yabloko party, 28.07.2021

The present authorities of the Republic of Belarus have switched to the tactics of total destruction of mass media that are not controlled by the state, civil society organisations and dissidents.

After the refusal to recognise the real results of the elections and the suppression by force of a peaceful mass protest, unprecedented for Europe, the current Belarusian authorities have been repeatedly persecuting and suppressing any free opinion and expression of will. They deliberately come into conflict with the outside world, aiming at the only priority to maintain the monopoly of the political and economic power of Alexander Lukashenko.
