The Other Russia (Russian: Другая РоссияDrugaya Rossiya) is a non-registered Russian political party



The Other Russia was established on 10 July 2010 by writer and National Bolshevik Party leader Eduard Limonov. On 21 January 2011, The Other Russia was denied registration by the Federal Registration Service because they did not have enough popular support among the Russian people.[6]

In 2010, three members of the party were arrested, and beaten for their role in the Manezhnaya Square riots.[7] These arrests were flagged by human rights organizations as politically motivated by the member's involvement in the Other Russia party.[8][9]

Since 2014 national-bolsheviks,[10][11] members of The Other Russia participated in pro-Russian unrest in Donbass. Members of the party, formed armed troops "Interbrigades". Two members of The Other Russia died during the War in Donbass[12][13][14]

On 6 November 2017; several party's activists were arrested in Saint Petersburg for "unauthorized protest" as they commemorate the centenary of the Bolshevik revolution of 1917.[1][2][3][4]

On 7 February 2018; in Syria, Kirill Ananiev, a veteran member of the banned National Bolshevik Party and The Other Russia, was killed in US-Army strikes during the Battle of Khasham.[15][16]


The former Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov said The Other Russia "united national-bolsheviks, nationalists, liberals, social-democrats, and socialists" and adding that "there are no parties similar to that one anywhere in the world".[17]
