Speech of the First Deputy head of the YABLOKO faction of the State Duma Sergei Ivanenko during discussion of the resolution on Georgia
September 13, 2002

We consider that President Putin's political declaration, who warned the Georgian leadership on the seriousness of the situation, is acceptable. We think that the essence of this declaration is to invite President of Georgia Eduard Shevarnadze to take part in negotiations to be held in Kishinau at the beginning of October.

If You Want Peace, Prepare to War
September 20, 2002, By Grigory Yavlinsky
We can perceive some progress in the situation with Iraq. While the issue of sending UN inspectors to the country has almost been resolved, this should be brought to a logical conclusion. The inspectors should be able to start work without any preliminary conditions, be accorded wide proxies and be allowed to work unimpeded.


This Could Prove a Costly Escapade
The Moscow Times, September 23, 2002.
By Grigory Yavlinsky

Russian military strikes against Georgia are inadmissible. The questionable gains of a military operation are completely outweighed by the political damage that Russia would incur both at home and internationally if it spreads the war in Chechnya to the neighboring independent state of Georgia. For 200 years we lived together in a single state, including 70 years under the Soviet regime. The consequences of such a move would be destructive for both nations.

By Boris Vishnevsky, Novaya Gazeta No. 65, September 2002

Secondly, the political elite - the circle of decision-makers - is made up solely of people who have been appointed and not elected.Thirdly, issues of vital national importance are never subject to open debate.

What Has Changed in the World Since September 11?
by Grigory Yavlinsky

Far from changing the world, September 11 brought to light existing problems. Mankind was provided with a clear signal: the key problem of the 21st century must be resolved. I am referring to the growing gap globally between poverty, deterioration in living standards, a fall in life expectancy and rise in illnesses on the one hand, and the well-being, prosperity, technological progress, rising education standards and growth of intellectual potential on the other. In other words, we are witnessing a gap between the citizens of many countries whose lives have been deteriorating and the citizens of developed countries.

Unions Without Right-Wing Forces
The right wing of Russian politics is weakening
Izvestia, by Mikhail Vinogradov and Natalia Ratiani, September 5, 2002

Two serious parties target the middle class today - the Union of Right-Wing Forces (SPS) and Yabloko. However, can they convince the new middle class to become their electorate. Does this electorate want to vote for them? Otherwise, the right wing of Russian politics will disperse in its own contradictions and ambitions, while its electorate will turn to partners on the political arena that are smarter.
