Democratic coalition goes to power again with figs in your pocket

Last Friday, the press service of the Popular Freedom Party (PARNAS), on behalf of the democratic coalition, published a statement “On political alliance with the Yabloko party”. With this act, the opposition has demonstrated that it has launched a campaign for elections to the State Duma of Russia. The statement indicates that PARNAS does not consider Yabloko as a competitor and offers it a political union.

Pre-election fraternization of the opposition

There are not so many differences between the games. But the common goals - like the twin brothers. Here, the founder of the Yabloko party, Grigory Yavlinsky, with stubbornness worthy of a better use, does not tire of repeating that Crimea should be returned to Ukraine. For this, according to Yavlinsky, it is necessary to hold a new referendum under international control and under Ukrainian laws. Then everything will fall into place. “I must say: yes, Crimea is not ours,” insists Yavlinsky, and he can be understood. After all, it was the Galician countrymen of the longstanding leader Yabloko who staged a pseudo-revolutionary orgy in Ukraine and declared themselves to be the national winners. Millions of citizens were faced with a choice: either to give in and surrender to radical marginals, or to defend their identity - national, cultural, linguistic and even confessional.

Crimea made such a choice. Yavlinsky does not like it, and not only him. Last week, the leader of PARNAS Mikhail Kasyanov appeared in Strasbourg, where the regular session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) opened. He was called by the Lithuanian politician Emanuelis Zingeris, known for his anti-Russian views and public statements. Zingeris gave Kasyanov an office meeting with journalists, loudly presented as a "press conference of the PARNAS leader in the PACE" and brought him together with Mustafa Dzhemilev who appeared in Strasbourg. The photo of this commemorative meeting is accompanied by a signature, in which Dzhemilev is presented as the representative of the President of Ukraine on the issues of the Crimean Tatar people.

The press conference of Mikhail Kasyanov did not receive any decent coverage. Mustafa Dzhemilev filled this gap on his Facebook page. He cited the statement of the leader PARNAS at their joint meeting. “We are confident that the Crimea will ultimately be released and returned to Ukraine,” he said to Dzhemilev and promised to help with this. Dzhemilev reminds: Kasyanov spoke earlier about the illegality of the referendum held in 2014 in Crimea and even emphasized that “according to the UN Charter, only the Crimean Tatars have the right to raise the issue of self-determination of the peninsula”.

About fraternization Kasyanov and Dzhemilev became known movement "Antimaydan." It asked the Investigation Committee of Russia to give a legal assessment of the statements made by the leader of PARNAS. The lawyers of Antimaydan saw in them signs of a crime under article 275 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“High treason”).

Like it or not, here are the frank anti-Russian actions of opposition leaders are no secret to anyone. It would seem that in the year of big elections such a position is tantamount to political suicide. However, the rhetoric of Kasyanov and Yavlinsky is becoming louder and more insistent. Probably, they have their own reasons and calculations for that.

How to divide the protest electorate?

In October last year, Levada Center, close to the opposition, conducted a study on the attitude of Russians towards the return of Crimea to Ukraine. 83% of respondents reacted negatively to this idea. “Entirely positively” responded 8% of respondents, “rather positively” - 7%. The last two digits fascinated the opposition, which saw its electoral electorate in this audience.

The results of the research of the Levada Center should be treated with caution. Often he suffers from notorious bias. For example, the last election of the Moscow mayor showed that the Levada Center lowered Sergei Sobyanin’s rating by fifteen percent, while Opposition candidate Alexei Navalny overestimated as much by 35 percent.

However, the opposition has no other guideline, and the October poll inspired optimism. After all, the protest electorate designated by the “Levada Center” theoretically allows the so-called democratic coalition to get into power, at least in a belligerent manner.

Then came the boring arithmetic. She did not bring great joy: even with a friendly vote of supporters of the return of Crimea to Ukraine for Yabloko or PARNAS, the votes of these voters, scattered among the opposition parties, shrank to very miserable percentages. Then the carriers of the idea of ​​a single democratic list came on the scene.

This technique has already been used in elections to the Legislative Assembly of the Novosibirsk Region. There, candidates for RPR-PARNAS had problems with verifying signatures. Without waiting for a positive result, some PARNAS activists wisely moved to the list of the Yabloko party and so took part in the elections. Without much, by the way, success.

Now decided to repeat it at the federal level. PARNAS published its statement on January 29, and the very next day Yabloko responded. His new leader, Emilia Slabunova, agreed to a political union, but stipulated it with conditions. In particular, the associates of Mikhail Kasyanov should support Grigory Yavlinsky in the presidential elections in Russia. PARNAS quickly agreed. This was done by one of the party leaders, Ilya Yashin. It seemed that while Yavlinsky and Kasyanov were busy returning Crimea to Ukraine, their younger partners had successfully created a political union. But no.

A quick glance at the Russian legislation showed that the law “On the election of deputies to the State Duma” does not allow including in the federal list of candidates who are members of other political parties. Having understood this norm, Emilia Slabunova rejected the idea of ​​her opposition colleagues and explained (I quote from RIA News) that the party “Yabloko” is thus obtained; you need to withdraw your candidates - “it’s the same as the party’s self-liquidation, this is some kind of provocative statement, it’s one-sided impression - to attract attention to yourself all the time and to talked about creating informational occasions. ”

A new sharp assessment of the PARNAS initiative by Emilia Slabunova should not be misleading. The leader of Yabloko was not going to quarrel with colleagues at all. Turning to a full turn, Slabunova, on Monday, was again face to face with PARNAS and immediately offered her asset to negotiations on cooperation, using "other forms of interaction - county breeding, information policy, and much more."

How else? The electorate is general, political positions are close to phraseology, and there were no new ideas, which the Russians interested in prosperity of the country would follow together. One thing remains - to divide the territory following the example of the unforgettable "children of Lieutenant Schmidt" in the hope of supporting the undemanding public.

Election campaigns in Russia are usually rich in surprises. One thing is unchanged in them - every time voters come across parties going to the Russian parliament with a fig in their pockets. When behind democratic rhetoric lies essentially anti-Russian goals. This is not even shy. They publicly promise that the transfer of the Kurils to the Japanese, then the return of the Crimea to Ukraine and seriously expect to become part of the political power of the country. We need to firmly grasp: such power can only divide Russia, but I would like to preserve and multiply it ...

    "On January 25," a group of comrades "(I. Girgin, El Murid, E. Prosvirnin, K. Krylov, A. Kungurov, E. Limonov, M. Kalashnikov) announced the creation of the Committee on January 25" - an organization that declared itself " the third force "as opposed to the" guardians "and" liberals.

    Democratic coalition goes to power again with a fig in your pocket

    I would like to add - with a fig in my pocket and a clear prospect of another failure in the elections. Hiding behind "concern" about the welfare of the people (before the elections they remember the people) like a fig leaf, you cannot cover up your ugliness. This "coalition" in its essence resembles a feud of snickering nobles, talking to others through the lips, not hiding their contempt for those who do not shake hands. A kind of "aristocratic and intellectual" (as they think of themselves) ..., striving for power for the sake of their well-being. The Siberian taiga was longing for these "lights" and "fighters against the regime."

    As I understand it, the opposition should not only criticize the current government, but also offer society
    a program for the creation of the state, not its collapse. Born in Russia after the departure of Yeltsin,
    the so-called "opposition" is led by officials who were in power, who contributed to the collapse of the country in the 90s. Yavlinsky, (Nemtsov), Chubais, Kasyanov, Ryzhkov, Stankevich, Nadezhdin. They are still
    they can’t calm down that they are moved away from the feeder and are ready to go to any meanness against their people in order to return to power. Taking advantage of increased Western pressure on Russia, they instead
    support of the country (elementary patriotism), using the support of the enemy, openly urge
    to the collapse of the country. And this is not the opposition, these are paid agents are traitors with whom we must act in accordance with the law, and not flirt. One can imagine what they will do in the USA with
    people calling to give part of its territory. Here we need such, if not planted, then at least not allowed to elective companies, without looking back to the West.

    I agree with this, but the slogan behind their backs - Russia requires changes! - ALSO SOGALASEN. Clearly not with such ideas and leaders, but changes are needed! Remember in the 90s it was Yabloko and the Liberal Democratic Party that attracted many voters to its side , and the faction in the Duma had, precisely on protest moods. After all, the authorities did nothing, the poor became even poorer, and the rich even richer. I DO NOT WANT that these would attract all the disaffected! We need an adequate opposition, with normal ideas and leaders .What is still unlikely - money, media, administrative resources, and law enforcement bodies are in power. They will not let anyone into power! yes hi

Give Crimea and pay an indemnity? To surrender Donbass and arrest all participants in the hostilities of the DPR and LPR and hand them over to the clutches of Kiev? Do you want to be the leader of the "normal" EX? The very ones who destroyed (thank God, not completely!) The industry of Russia? We are very lucky that now the current leader is in power, not letting these crooks into power!

    Here are the words of one figure (a certain Alexander Tverskoy) from RPR-Parnassus:
    What should happen in Russia for it to become a normal state?

    1) Decommunization, recognition of the communist ideology as criminal. Demolition of all monuments, renaming of streets, prohibition of all communist parties. The ban on holding public office to everyone who was a member of the CPSU.
    2) De-Stalinization in particular. The official equating of Stalin with Hitler, the opening of all KGB archives for free access, a sharp condemnation of Stalin’s policies and personality.
    3) The debunking of the main historical propaganda myth of the Second World War. The recognition of this day as a day of sorrow, the whole truth about the war. There is no WWII, but there is World War II. Who started, who helped someone - the whole truth and only the truth. This arrogance and ambition of the Russians who have privatized the right of winners and do not know a damn thing about that war should be a thing of the past.
    4) The disbandment of the FSB. Completely. To the last lieutenant and secretary. Creation of a fundamentally new structure with new people who truly meet the security requirements of Russia and citizens. But this is what works there now - to strip all ranks and prohibit holding any positions in such structures.
    5) Lustration of current officials. President, Cabinet, Council of Federation, State Duma, Governors. Remove all these people from office, conduct a legal assessment of their activities and judge if necessary. Prohibit politics for life. The same thing to do with the Federal Constitutional Court.
    6) Withdraw troops from Ukraine, return Crimea, withdraw troops from Syria, stop all subsidies to Chechnya - begin the slow process of its disconnection.
    7) Declare that any republic and region in Russia can hold a referendum for its independence.
    8) Dismissal of 80 percent of journalists from state channels and a wolf ticket to the profession. With public condemnation.
    9) Production. Start something to produce your own.
    10) A sharp reduction in defense spending, down to the minimum, to only support all the money for medicine, education, science and public sector employees.
    11) A new people who will understand that the essence of the state is in matters for its citizens and in their worthy life. A people who will respect themselves and others. People with self-esteem, and not superiority over others. People with a fundamentally new understanding of citizenship, decency and pride.
    12) Complete separation of church and state. Without preferences any of the faiths.
    Now tell me that not everything is lost in Russia, and that you are confident in the coming of a bright future.

    We had local elections in the fall, so after looking at the posters of Yabloko (Parnas was not seen), I came to the conclusion that the fruit PR-manager directly protested his employers. They went under the slogan " Lower smart power". The first time I saw it - I whinnied for about five minutes. It's more worthless sale of the country than when Grisha was vice-premier, you still look for it (if you don't take into account the moral component of this action). I don't know for whom this slogan was designed, obviously for people not older than 35 (or on fish with a memory of 2 minutes).

After all, they will surely have to be picked up there from such bright prospects. And in fact, they will certainly be picked up there, but only in order to tear them apart and send them to the Fashington regional committee in a parcel post.

    I think that the liberalists themselves are aware of this. Therefore, they have one goal: once again to get a handout from Western curators for a comfortable existence.

    The real danger comes from the liberals in positions that are sufficient in all government offices. They can be especially bad during a crisis.
