National Alliance of Freedom and Ukrainian patriotism "OFFENSIVE" (Ukrainian: Національний Альянс свободи та Українського Патріотизму «НАСТУП») was a political party in Ukraine registered in May 2000[1] that in 2014 de facto merged into Solidarity.[2][3] It had participated in elections (only) under the name All-Ukrainian Party of Peace and Unity (Ukrainian: Всеукраїнська партія миру i єдності).[1]

History[edit]

The party was not allowed to participate in the electoral alliance "Rainbow" in the Ukrainian 2002 parliamentary elections.[1]

In the 2006 elections, the party failed as part of the electoral alliance Yuriy Karmazin Bloc to win parliamentary representation.[1]

In the 2007 elections, the party failed again as part of the All-Ukrainian Community to win parliamentary representation.[1] After this election the party was renamed National Alliance of Freedom and Ukrainian patriotism "OFFENSIVE".[4]

The party did not participate in the 2012 parliamentary elections.[5]

Late 2013 politician Petro Poroshenko's party Solidarity was dissolved, he then became head of National Alliance of Freedom and Ukrainian patriotism "OFFENSIVE" which was quickly renamed into All-Ukrainian Union Solidarity.[2][3] By doing so Poroshenko de facto prolonged the life of Solidarity and de facto merged National Alliance of Freedom and Ukrainian patriotism "OFFENSIVE" into Solidarity.[2][3] Poroshenko was elected President of Ukraine on 25 May 2014.[6][7][8][9][10] Solidarity, then named "Bloc of Petro Poroshenko",[11] won the October 2014 Ukrainian parliamentary election with 132 seats, more than any other party.[12][13]
