Russia. Putin’s meeting with Yavlinsky
At the end of September, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, stated that the troops’ operations in this area would continue “until the complete destruction of the Nazi regime in Kiev.” During his visit to the Kremlin, however, Yavlinski was to express his belief in the “need to start negotiations as soon as possible” regarding a ceasefire and to declare his readiness to participate in peace talks.
Russian politicians were also supposed to talk about future economic problems resulting from the “fragmentation of the global economic system.” The entry emphasized that they did not discuss the upcoming presidential elections, in which Jawlinski is one of the potential candidates.
Potential candidates for the president of Russia
The economist publicly declared that he would consider participating “provided that at least 10 million signatures are collected for his nomination.” However, so far there have been no negotiations with the presidential administration.
The Yabloko Party has repeatedly emphasized that its leader’s position on armed aggression is widely known. Yavlinsky opposes Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine and insists on a ceasefire as soon as possible.
“He believes that the most important things are human life, freedom, true democracy and an effective modern economy,” the group emphasized in a post on Telegram. During Thursday’s meeting, the economist was to “present in detail” his beliefs to Putin.
