The Russian United Democratic Party “Yabloko” is a Russian social-liberal political party. Yabloko was founded in 1993 by Grigory Yavlinsky, Yury Boldyrev and Vladimir Lukin. Emilia Slabunova is the current leader of Yabloko.
Russia's liberals are deeply divided. As their electoral prospects worsen, so do their quarrels. Now, one prominent leader has begun a new row, saying supporters of jailed activist Alexey Navalny shouldn't vote for his party.
Grigory Yavlinsky, the founder of Russia’s largest liberal political party, has declared that he does not want votes from supporters of imprisoned opposition figure Alexey Navalny, labeling his views as “fundamentally different.”
Yabloko, Russia’s most prominent liberal political bloc, has rejected an application by a former campaign chief of jailed opposition activist Alexey Navalny to stand as a parliamentary candidate in upcoming elections.
Grigory Yavlinsky, the founder of Russia's largest liberal political party, turned his fire on anti-corruption activist Alexey Navalny over the weekend, as the country's fractured opposition resumed its customary infighting.
The head of liberal Russian party Yabloko has asked President Vladimir Putin to cancel the annual address to parliament. Emilia Slabunova suggested instead that the president report the results of his work as the head of state.
Activists from the opposition Yabloko party said they have gathered more than the required 100,000 signatures for veteran politician Grigory Yavlinsky to be registered as a candidate in the March 18 Russian presidential election.
