1. The Civil Initiative, led by economist Andrey Nechayev, aims to reform Russia to transform it into a modern country respected around the world, a country that would secure a comfortable, safe and decent life for its citizens, according to its website.

According to its website, it supports the emerging opposition movement in Russia, speaking out against ‘politicized’ cases against May 6 Bolotnaya rally activists, and inspections of NGOs.

2. The Revival of Agrarian Russia Party seeks to develop the agricultural sector.

The party sees itself as a successor of the Agrarian Party of Russia that was set up in 1992 and in 2009 joined the ruling United Russia party. Led by Vasily Krylov, it laments the disappearance of more than 20,000 villages, the destruction of the dozens of thousands of husbandry farms and believes that the agricultural sector can be the driver of growth for Russia.

3. The All-Russian Socialist People's Fatherland Party. Chaired by Yury Prokofyev, it wants to gain ground as a leading leftist movement that would have the capacity to engage in a constructive dialogue with the authorities. According to its website, which is not very informative, this is a socialist movement that is skeptical both of the authorities and the opposition.

4. The Party for the Revival of Russia was originally set up in 2002, and even took the ninth place in the 2003 parliamentary election. But some time later it was removed from the official list for failing to comply with the 50,000 membership limit set forth by the law.

It re-emerged after the rules for politicial parties were eased and is chaired, like it used to be 10 years ago, by ex-chairman of the State Duma Gennady Seleznyov.

According to earlier interviews, Seleznyov wants his party to take part in regional elections in the autumn of 2013.

5. The Civil Stand Party is the fifth in the updated list, with Dmitry Chirov stated as its chairperson.

According to its Charter published on the website of the Ministry of Justice, the party wants to contribute to the development of the civil society in Russia, the local government and the rule of law. It wants to promote an active participation in political events, in elections and referendums among the Russian people.
