Welcome to Democracy.Ru, the site for promotion of democracy in Russia!

The English-language version of Democracy.Ru is in no way a translation of everything that is published in Russian but still, you can obtain some information about our election system and find out what national non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are doing to promote development of the civil society in Russia.

The Russian-language Democracy.Ru is an open forum for those who are interested in the workings of democracy and wish to exchange relevant information or publish their materials dedicated to the widest range of democracy-related issues.

We do carry most of the English-language translations done by IFES (International Foundation for Election Systems) in its years of work in Russia as we inherited all of www.ifes.ru contents.

Note: At this stage the English-language version of Democracy.Ru is designed for general information and reference purposes only and is not updated as regularly as the Russian part of Democracy.Ru.

Few grown-up people had any illusions that if anything was part of a platform it could become reality only if Putin wanted it to be.

VOTING AGAINST EVERYONE: THE LAST RESORT OF DEMOCRACY?
Although the column against everyone appeared almost simultaneously with the conduct of the first fair elections in our country, voting against everyone has never been a decisive factor at the federal level. Usually only 3-4% of voters used this column in their ballots during the federal elections. However in 2003, if worst comes to worst, voting against everyone can even collect the second highest vote

KRASNOYARSK CRISIS: RANDOM OR NORMAL?
The decision of Krasnoyarsk Krai Election Commission on declaring the gubernatorial elections invalid came as a real thunderbolt out of a clear sky for most of us. However, it wasn't anything like a great sensation from the judicial point of view. The elections have been called invalid before. Today applying to courts with their appeals and claiming the elections invalid has become a common practice for many candidates having lost the elections, just like a finishing touch of the campaign.
