Partiya Narodnoy Svobody

Party Leader: Mikhail Kasyanov


People's Freedom Party (PARNAS) in Russia is a political party that fights for liberal values, such as human rights, democracy and a free and competitive market. PARNAS defends the systemic decommunisation of Russia in order to completely move away from its totalitarian Soviet past, fights to represent the interest of pro-European Russian citizens and strives to carry out protests against Putin’s regime and usurpation of power.

The party strongly condemns Putin’s aggressive domestic and foreign policy and consistently stands in opposition to it. The ruling authorities impose many restrictions on the party’s political activities, including blocking access to elections and blackmailing activists. Boris Nemtsov, the party's late co-leader, was murdered near the Kremlin in 2015, and the organisers of this political assassination have not yet been found.
