(Did Kagarlitsky send greetings?)


The party, officially the 'Social-Political Movement – Party of New 
Russia', [4] was founded on 13 May 2014 in Donetsk, Ukraine.[5] "The new 
party will be led only by those people who in this difficult time showed 
themselves as true patriots of their Motherland and proved themselves as 
true fighters and defenders of their Fatherland," party leader Gubarev 

The first congress was attended by pro-Russian separatist officials of 
the Donetsk People's Republic, Donbass Militia. Notable figures 
belonging to the political far-right were involved, including: Donetsk 
Republic leader Pavel Gubarev, anti-Semitic and fascist writer Alexander 
Prokhanov,[6] fascist political scientist and Eurasia Party leader 
Aleksandr Dugin, and Valery Korovin.[7][2] Both Prokhanov and Korovin 
are members of the Izborsky Club (ru), which advocate a "Eurasian 
Empire" to "save the peoples of Russia from degeneration and outside 
attack".[8] The congress announced the creation of a new self-declared 
confederate state called 'New Russia'. The state would, according to 
Dugin, have its capital city in Donetsk, Russian Orthodox Christianity 
as the state religion, and would nationalize major industries.[9] 
According to Gubarev the state would also include (the major cities 
currently not under control of separatists) Kharkiv, Kherson, 
Dnipropetrovsk, Mykolaiv and Zaporizhia.[10][11]
