YABLOKO's tasks up to 2018: participation in elections and support of protest actions

Press Release, January 27, 2013
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 term.

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...

Address to the President of the RF Vladimir Putin

The Yabloko Association, The 9th Congress, October 28, 2000

Most respected Vladimir Vladimirovich,

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 Wall Street Journal, by Peter Gumbell-- Staff Reporter of The Wall Street Journal, December 20, 1990

MOSCOW – Hidden behind a high concrete wall on the southern edge of Moscow is a cluster of dachas for the Russian government elite. Cooks serve up meals three times a day, while maids deliver wicker baskets of the best sausage, cheese and vodka for snacks. Chauffeur-driven black Volga sedans stand ready to whisk the pampered residents to town.

Declaration of Grigory Yavlinsky, head of the Yabloko faction in the State Duma

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.

By Sergei Mitrokhin, Deputy of the State Duma of the Yabloko faction, Deputy Chairman of the Committee for Local Self-Government

November 17, 1999

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:
