The Libertarian Party of Russia (Russian: Либертарианская партия России; Libertarianskaya partiya Rossii) is a political party in the Russian Federation founded in 2007. As its name suggests, its political philosophy is libertarianism, "self-ownership and non-aggression."[1]

The party has had two members elected to local office, both in Moscow. The first, Vera Kichanova, was elected in 2012 to the municipal council of the Yuzhnoye Tushino District of Moscow.[2] The second, Andey Shalnev, was elected in 2014 as a deputy council for the Pushkino District. (Shalnev ran as an independent).[3]

The party coordinates the Adam Smith Forum (an annual international libertarian conference in Moscow), participates in the organization of the Free People's Forum (which discusses Russian politics), and runs other activities and publications, including a monthly newspaper and a podcast series.[1]
