[31.10.2014] Russia and Ukraine // Statement by YABLOKOs Political Committee, 30.10.2014, Submitted by Grigory Yavlinsky Russia's aggressive policy towards Ukraine is central in the anti-European policies of the Russian authorities.
The annexation of Crimea and transfer of the Russian arms to the so-called "separatists", sending volunteers there, propaganda and military support from Russia - all of this fits into the concept of "incitement of war".
This policy does not have the slightest meaningful perspective - either political, or economic, or military, or diplomatic. It only leads to endless bloodshed, rapid growth of crime, lies and even greater degradation of the situation both in the South-East of Ukraine and the Russian state and society. Support of quasi-state formations that have absolutely no political or economic means in addition to other things a lie and unforgivable attitude towards people as some “material” for geopolitical experiments.

[23.09.2014] Grigory Yavlinsky on St.Petersburg elections Grigory Yavlinskys blog post, September 23, 2014 I will not take part in the inauguration of Grigory Poltavchenko as St.Petersburg Governor tomorrow. Gubernatorial elections in St.Petersburg were conducted with numerous violations, politicians who had much support in St.Petersburg - such as Oksna Dmitiyeva - were not allowed to run, and a questionable mass-scale voting by absentee ballots was held. Mass-scale fraud was reported by observers and mass media at St.Petersburg municipal elections. Therefore, Grigory Poltavchenko has been and still is an appointed Governor rather than an elected one.
[26.08.2014] Economics can not be deceived by propaganda Politicians must not do stupid things and lie Grigory Yavlinskys blog, 20.08.2014 3. The decision on the ban of food imports is taken in the situation when Russia's economy has been slowing down since the Fall of 2013, and has entered recession as of results of the six months of 2014, i.e., economic decline (stagnation) has begun. Together with the growth of prices this marks the beginning of a dangerous economic decease called stagflation (stagnation + growing inflation). It means that three processes will be simultaneously taking place: a) the personal incomes will fall; b) concealed unemployment will begin (i.e., work for miserly wages); c) prices in the shops will be rising.
