Such a decision was made by the Bureau of the Regional Council of the Pskov branch of Yabloko in connection with the early termination of the powers by Dmitry Permyakov, a Yabloko deputy of the Pskov city parliament.

The Bureau of the Regional Council of the Pskov Yabloko decided to transfer the mandate of the deputy of the Pskov City Duma to Tatyana Pasman, after Dmitry Permyakov resigned in December 2021.

Tatyana Pasman is a well-known teacher and educator in the Pskov region. For more than 27 years, she has been working as a methodologist in history, social science and law at the Department of Methodology of Postgraduate Pedagogical Education of the Pskov Regional Institute for Advanced Training of Educators, she is the coordinator of educational programmes at the Centre for Civic Education of the Institute, and also is the Secretary of the Institute’s Academic Council.


Tatyana Pasman was born on 22 July, 1962 in Pskov. She finished a secondary school in Pskov and graduated with honours from the Pskov State Pedagogical Institute with a degree in “Teacher of History, Social Science of the Soviet State and Law”, and then did her postgraduate studies in the Laboratory of History of the Institute of General Secondary Education of the Russian Academy of Education.


For more than 10 years she worked as a teacher in the schools of Pskov and the Pskov region, and was a senior teacher at the interfaculty department of history of the Pskov State Pedagogical University. Her general teaching experience exceeds 35 years.


Tatyana Pasman is the author and co-author of different educational and methodological manuals on history and social science for schoolchildren, the author of a manual on social science for the system of advanced training for teachers, a federal tutor in Modern Educational Management.


Since 2002, he has been an expert in checking the Unified State Examination in history and social science. Long-term developer, member of the organational committee and member of the jury of the children’s Olympiad on history in Pskov, Chair of the regional jury of the Interregional competition “The best lesson on the topic “History of political repressions and resistance to unfreedom in the USSR”.


She also was an expert of educational and methodological complexes on history and social science of leading Russian publishing houses, was a Russian expert of the Council of Europe on civic education and an expert of competitive works of the regional stage of the All-Russian action “I am a citizen of Russia”.


Tatyana also participated in the implementation of international projects of the European Permanent Conference of Associations of History Teachers EUROCLIO, the Open Society Institute, the International Centre for Educational Innovations of the Russian State Pedagogical University and the Austrian educational programme KulturKontakt.


She has the title of Honorary Worker of Higher Professional Education of the Russian Federation (2003).


Tatyana was a participant in the election campaigns of the Pskov branch of Yabloko for the Pskov Regional Assembly (2016 and 2021) and the Pskov City Duma (2017). In 2017, Tatyana Pasman received the most votes out of all 15 candidates of the Pskov Yabloko in single-member districts.


“The state should work for society, it is not a closed caste, for which we are all servants. I think it is important to constantly remind people of this,” Tatyana Pasman said in an interview with the Grazhdanin newspaper in 2016.


The editors of the Grazhdanin TV channel prepared a video about Tatyana Pasman in the same year.


Lev Shlosberg, Chairman of the regional branch, said commenting on the decision of the Bureau of the Regional Council of the Pskov branch of Yabloko: “Tatiana Pasman is an full-fledged public figure, teacher and educator, a person with strong civic and political convictions. She is open, responsible and very efficient.


I think that the decision of the Bureau of the Pskov Yabloko to transfer the mandate of the deputy of the Pskov City Duma to Tatiana Pasman will be positively received by the entire educational community of the city: employees of higher education, teachers of Pskov schools, and parents of schoolchildren.


I am sure that Tatyana, even in the short time remaining for the work of the current convocation of the Pskov City Duma, will be noticeable in the city parliament and adequately represent the opinion of the city residents.”
