July 1, the Russian party Yabloko presented its program for the Russian State Duma elections scheduled for 18 September. The document specified the actions of Russia in Crimea as annexation. Therefore, the so-called vice-governor of the occupied Sevastopol Alexander Reshetnikov has asked the Russian government to check the opposition party for extremism, as QHA reported earlier.
However that's not all – a congress of Russian Yabloko political party approved the list of candidates for the State Duma without any Crimean resident. The interviewed party members told reporters that this position is due to the fact that it does not recognize the legitimacy of the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation. Having formally united the Crimean districts with the Russia’s Krasnodar region, the Yabloko’s regional electoral lists preset only candidates from the Krasnodar area.
However, the Yabloko party is not afraid of any inspections, according its head Grigory Yavlinsky.
“We are open to any meaningful dialogue and discussion and are ready for any inspections,” Yavlinsky said in his comments on condemnation of the annexation of Crimea by his political party and Reshetnikov’s offer to check its election program for the calls to violate Russia’s territorial integrity.
