The Russian opposition wants to win seats in parliament by mobilizing voters angry over the imprisonment of Alexei Navalny. But the plan has already been hit hard by clashes within the opposition.
As he writes Reuters, The founder of the anti-Kremlin Yabloko party called for the withdrawal of Navalny, who has become the most important opposition politician since the arrest of the Russians.
“Everyone must decide for themselves whether or not to support Navalny. But it is important to understand that democratic Russia, the people and life and respect without fear and oppression do not fit Navalny’s policy,” said Horihori Yavlinsky, a racist and authoritarian nationalist.

And Navalny’s allies plan to encourage people to vote tactfully. But Yavlinsky’s comments caused controversy in the Yabloko party. In addition, imprisoned opposition allies are now demanding that the party expel its founder.
Fights began in the Russian section of social networks. Some users attack Yavlinsky, while others support him. But all of this calls into question Russia’s ability to unite. Despite not getting enough votes to enter parliament, officials in the past allowed the Yabloko party to run in elections. Meanwhile, applications for party registration from Navalny’s associates continue to be rejected.
Some Yabloko members have criticized Yalinsky, accusing him of sidelining voters at a time when people expect political support after the protests.
“Either our party can represent these people, or we will go without voters. This is oxygen for political forces,” said Lev Schlosberg, an influential party member.

The opposition’s confrontation sheds light on the growing skepticism among Navalny and Kremlin critics about his ability to be a leader. In particular, many were wary of his unacceptable comments. The Yabloko party expelled him in 2007 for “nationalist activism.”
Navalny, who took part in rallies of radical nationalists and spoke harshly about people of non-Russian descent, insisted that the real reason for his expulsion was his desire to leave Yavlinsky.
