Since 2014 the party leader is Vadym Rabinovych.[1][2]


At the Ukrainian parliamentary election, 2002 the party won only 0.16% of the votes as part of "Peoples Rukh".

During the legislative elections of 26 March 2006, the party was part of the Opposition Bloc "Ne Tak". In the 30 September 2007 elections, the party failed as part of the Electoral Bloc of Political Parties "KUCHMA" to win parliamentary representation.
