On March 3 member of YABLOKO’s Political Committee made a visit to the Astrakhan Region within the framework of election campaign to the Astrakhan City Duma.

Grigory Yavlinsky had a meeting with Governor Alexander Zhilkin. The Governor spoke in detail about implementation of the long-term strategy of socio-economic development of the region. “The executive authority of the region has been working in close contact with the Public Chamber of the region, trade unions, deputies and representatives of political parties,” Zhilkin noted. The Governor also showed his interest in further cooperation with YABLOKO.

The Governor also highly assessed the work of the representatives of YABLOKO in the Administration of the region.

Grigory Yavlinsky held meetings in the city Administration and Government and representatives of public organisation Opora (Support) and also delivered a lecture on the world financial crisis, its causes, stages and consequences and the ways out of the crisis.

Grigory Yavlinsky also made a speech in front of students of the Astrakhan State University who participate in the New Horizons project. A lecture by a renowned economist was followed by questions and answers. Most of the topics also evolved around the world crisis and the situation in the Russian economy. According to Yavlinsky, today we have the best period for making a break-through in modernising Russia. However, he warned that transformations should be held accurately with account of failing economic reforms of early 1990s.

The visit of YABLOKO’s first chairman was closed by a meeting with the activists of the regional branch of YABLOKO. The discussion developed around the performance, the aims and goals of the party in the present conditions.
