The Party of Russia's Rebirth (Партия возрождения России, Partiya Vozrozhdeniya Rossii) was a left-wing nationalist political party in Russia led by Gennady Seleznev, former Duma speaker and then member of Communist Party of Russia (2002-2007), and later by the Nationalist writer Georgy Pryakhin (2007-2008).[1] The party took the name of the illegal Russian fascist party, which existed in the USSR, and abroad among the Russian expatriates, in the 1930s.[2][3]

At the last legislative elections, December 7, 2003, the alliance of the Party of Russia's Rebirth and the Russian Party of Life party won 1.9% of the popular vote and no seats on the party list ballot, although Seleznev himself narrowly beat liberal candidate Irina Khakamada in Saint Petersburg to win a seat there.

In the 2007 elections Party of Russia's Rebirth blocked up with another nationalist party, Patriots of Russia, led by Gennady Semigin.

On September 9, 2008, the party was officially dissolved.[4][5] Many of the members including Gennady Seleznev joined Patriots of Russia.[6]
