Emilia Slabunova: What are YABLOKO’s goals in the forthcoming parliamentary election
– Good evening! I am pleased and have the honour to introduce you our today’s guest – Emilia Slabunova, Chair of the YABLOKO party. Emilia Edgardovna, thank you for coming to our studio.
– Good evening!
– What are the goals of the YABLOKO party, the most authoritative democratic liberal party in our country in the upcoming elections?
International Network of Liberal Women (INLW) condemns the continuous arresting and imprisonment of members of oppositional parties in the Republic of Karelia in the Russian Federation!
Yesterday two active women of YABLOKO, of which the Women’s organization is a full member of INLW, were put in prison on fake accusations!
INLW therefore demands the immediate release of Olga Zaletskaya and Alexandra Kornilova!
It is outrageous to see these innocent politically active women being taken from their homes. One lady has two children at home waiting for her as well as her old sick father! Yabloko’s women in different towns of Karelia are good examples as many are engaged in local politics.
In 2013 one Yabloko women was elected Mayor of the capital of Karelia. Quite an achievement being member of the oppositional party Yabloko!
Hereunder the Statement of Yabloko, which we fully underline!
