I know JohnUK will lash out at this newly registered nationalist party for being "fascist", but it is nothing of the sort. Sergey Baburin is a respected politician, who was a member of Rogozin/Glazyev Motherland party. Another member of the party Ivan Mironov is a long-standing bitter enemy of liberal traitor and Freemason sellout Chubais.
This new Russian Union party will definitely provide a major boost for the patriotic forces in the Putin gov't, headed by Rogozin and Glazyev, and can help them launch an independent bid to power after Putin retires. Clearly, Putin won't rule forever, and Russian patriots must be prepared for the post-Putin era, with a powerful nationalistic party of our own!

The Justice Ministry has registered a political party with the declared objective of creating a unified state of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus called the Russian Union.
The party is called the Russian Peoples Union and is the first nationalist party registered under the new, much simpler rules adopted earlier this year. It should be noted that the word Russian in the partys title is used to describe the territory or state, not the ethnicity or language.
The party is headed by Sergey Baburin, a leftist nationalist politician who, despite his relatively young age of 53 years, was a member of the Communist Party and a member of parliament in the Soviet Union. After the Soviet Union broke up Baburin continued his political career and in 2003 became deputy chairman of the State Duma as a member of the nationalist bloc Rodina (Motherland). However, when Baburins organization the Peoples Union declared the intention of running on its own in early 2007, authorities refused to register its candidates.
Another notable figure in the new party is Baburins deputy Ivan Mironov a top member of the Congress of Russian Communities, an organization defending the interests of ethnic Russians in foreign countries and son of the head of the unregistered National Sovereignty Party of Russia. In 2006 Ivan Mironov was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder key Russian reformer Anatoly Chubais, and spent two years in pre-trial custody before being cleared by a jury and court. Another deputy of Baburin is former M1 mixfight champion Roman Zentsov.
The party declares its slogan as National power, national politics, national economics, and sees its primary objective in building a strong and unified state of three Slavic peoples Russians, Belarusians and Ukrainians first as an interstate union and later as a single political entity.
The registration of the Russian Peoples Union brings the number of political parties in Russia to 26, from only seven before the new rules came into force.
