Party flag

The bloc was formed by the political parties Liberal Russia and Republican Party of Russia, as well as the all-Russian public movement “Movement of Drivers of Russia”. The block leader was Viktor Pokhmelkin. Particular emphasis in the bloc’s election program was placed on protecting the rights of car owners. The program included a statement that the bloc was opposed to the “predatory” compulsory “auto-citizenship”, which, in the bloc’s opinion, was another extortion. The bloc also opposed the “unfair” transport tax, as well as against the increase in customs duties on cars. In addition, the electoral bloc supported the restriction of labor immigration from Central Asian countries.

The top three on the electoral list were Viktor Pokhmelkin, well-known politician and manager Boris Fyodorov, and lawyer Leonid Olshansky; the party list in Moscow was headed by Konstantin Borovoy, in Saint Petersburg – by Sergei Vivatenko. The party has nominated its candidates in 12 single-member constituencies.

According to the results of the elections, the bloc won 0.84% of the votes of those who voted;[5] at the same time, Pokhmelkin was elected to the State Duma in the Sverdlovsky single-mandate district (Perm).
