Kremlin’s party of “right-minded democrats”


The Kremlin is again considering the creation of yet another political project for "right-wing democrats." RBC Daily reports that the idea to establish a new Kremlin-sponsored political party to unite right-wing businessmen comes from the former head of the presidential administration, Alexander Voloshin.

The new party would be headed by Tatyana Dyachenko, daughter of Russia's late president Boris Yeltsin, who is making a comeback into public life. The new party would replace the defunct Right Cause (Pravoe Delo) project and would promote President Dmitry Medvedev's idea for modernising Russia's economy.

Russia's ruling United Russia party, headed by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, has called another meeting of its "liberal wing," which will bring together representatives of Russian business and culture. Sources in the presidential administration say that the gathering will serve as the launchpad for the new right-wing party.
