Results and lessons of the first parliamentary elections of the system after the 1 July, 2020 [the adoption of Vladimir Putin’s amendments to the Russian Constitution]

The past parliamentary elections are the first after the cynical, insulting and hypocritical imposition on the country of [Vladimir Putin’s] “amendments” to the Constitution.

We participated in these elections being well aware that in the changed conditions it is absolutely impossible to maintain the previous goals, objectives and methods of work of Yabloko as a centrist social-liberal democratic party of a parliamentary type in a campaign that cannot be called elections by any standards.

The 2021 Nobel Peace Prize to Dmitry Muratov “for his efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace” is an award to a Russian citizen, a public figure, editor-in-chief of an opposition newspaper and a member of the Yabloko party. Certainly, this is a prize to the [murdered] journalists of Novaya Gazeta – Yuri Shchekochikhin, Anna Politkovskaya, Natalya Estemirova, Igor Domnikov, Stanislav Markelov, Anastasia Baburova, but not only to them.

On the calls to vote of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation

Decision No 148 by the Federal Political Committee of Yabloko, adopted on 14.10.2021, published on 18.10.2021

The Political Committee of Yabloko considers it extremely harmful for Russian politics and the country as a whole to use voting for the communists as a tactical method of fighting a repressive dictatorship. Bolshevism and Stalinism, which the Communist Party of the Russian Federation represents in modern Russia, is an ideology alien to us. Moreover, Yabloko’s position is that creation of a modern state in Russia and development of the country is impossible without overcoming Bolshevism and Stalinism. Lack of understanding this and insufficient attention to overcoming Bolshevism in the first post-Soviet decade is one of the key reasons for the failure of the reforms.

In the Language of War

An article on Ukraine published by Vladimir Putin in July was completed yesterday by Dmitry Medvedev. If someone could still doubt the intentions, now everything has become obvious: Russia is moving towards war.

There is no point in discussing either the form or the content of what has been published under the signature of the former President of Russia, and now the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation. It is clear that rude xenophobic and chauvinistic statements against a neighbouring sovereign state are nothing more than a provocation.

Dmitry Muratov received the Nobel Peace Prize as one of the last defenders of free speech in Russia. The last, not in the sense that defenders of freedom of speech in Russia will end on him, but that he is one of the last people who personally launched freedom of speech after the collapse of the USSR and who has been maintaining its level for all these 30 years.
