The Goals and Objectives
of the Left Front

Our goal is to build a just Socialist society.

We are convinced that our country needs a single, strong, radical and modern Left movement. The growing numbers of protest activity indicate that just like one hundred years ago, the people of Russia are not ready to endlessly endure oppression and bullying.

We call for the creation of a Socialist society based on the combination of public property, political and productive democracy. This will ensure the rapid growth of the economy, science, culture and a breakthrough in high technology, as well as a fundamentally new level of social justice.

We look forward and invite all those who share left-wing views, who want a free and equitable future for themselves and their children. To all those who still have the courage and the conscience. There is room for everyone!
