Party of Peace and Unity
It was founded in 1996, uniting several communist groups that opposed president Yeltsin's policies. Its leader was Sazhi Umalatova, a Russian politician of Chechen nationality, who was a devoted opponent of Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin. Umalatova supported the August coup in 1991 and the anti-Yeltsin opposition in the October 1993 events. However, she later became an ardent supporter of President Vladimir Putin.
At the December 7, 2003 legislative elections, the party won 0.25% of the popular vote and no seats. The party did not participate in the 2007 legislative election and merged with the party Patriots of Russia in 2008.
