Communist Party of Social Justice: History, Program, Leaders


The role of political parties in the formation of a civil society has been repeatedly discussed. To increase competition in this area, amendments to the regulatory act were adopted, which simplified the process of registering factions wishing to ultimately participate in lawmaking. All this led to the fact that in our country the number of the above associations, the so-called novices in politics, has increased dramatically. This status was awarded to the Communist Party of Social Justice, the abbreviation of which suggests that its creators were aiming to become a serious alternative to the “left” association, which for many years has been led by the “Kremlin oppositionist” Gennady Andreyevich Zyuganov. However, it would be inappropriate to compare these two structures, since they have different weight categories. Nevertheless, the Communist Party of Social Justice de jure has the right to exist, and its leadership has made remarkable efforts to win elections in different regions of the country.


Did you complete the tasks? What ideas propagate the leaders of the CPSU? Consider these questions in more detail.


The Communist Party of Social Justice was established at a special convention on April 8, 2012. Already on May 28, the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation officially registered it. But who was the initiator of its creation? It was Andrei Bogdanov, who at that time headed the Democratic Party of Russia (DPR) and at the same time the Center for Political Technologies. But the author of the program for the association was Vyacheslav Smirnov, the head of the Union of Citizens Party. It was necessary to choose a person who would begin to exercise the current leadership of the entire structure. Who will get the responsible post - the First Secretary of the Central Committee? It was decided to entrust him to Yuri Morozov (a native of the Saratov region). The communist social justice party became the main place of employment for it.


But what ideas and views did the ideologues of the above association preach? Let's analyze this question in more detail.

Political goals

Andrei Bogdanov and his associates want to transform Russia into a country where citizens would be equal in rights. It should not have a social imbalance: the state will take full care of its citizens, adequately paying for work and financially ensuring the vulnerable segments of the population: pensioners, the disabled, and other poor. The “Communist Party of Social Justice”, the program of which, in fact, in many respects echoed the ideas and plans of the “left” association headed by Zyuganov, puts the interests of the individual in the first place. The people are the only source of power, and the bureaucratic apparatus must express only their will, and not put their vested interests first.

Social justice

Civil society, according to the leadership of the CPSU, should live according to the laws of social justice.


The state is obliged to invest the maximum possible in the human potential, since the individual is the main value and wealth of Russia. This is the only way to improve economic growth rates and increase the level of welfare in society.

Free Education

And, of course, the aforementioned Russian political party is guarding the interests of the ordinary citizen. Everyone should have access to free education in the school, technical school or university. Moreover, having received a profession, a person will be obliged to work on his profile for 5 years, and only then he has the right to change his occupation.

Medical care at no cost

In addition to free education, the state must guarantee its citizens free treatment. At the same time, regardless of the financial situation, everyone has the right to use modern technologies that currently exist in domestic medicine.


In addition, the needy categories of citizens should return the benefits for the purchase of medicines and remedies for rehabilitation.

Social housing at no cost

Every social unit in Russia, especially the newly-minted family, should be provided with social housing, and absolutely free of charge.

Elimination of bribery and corruption

In the system of building a civil society, where there is no social inequality, there should be no bribery and corruption. If an official is identified as having committed the above act, then he must be awaited by a severe punishment, and the higher the rank of a civil servant, the stronger the responsibility. Moreover, all property of the perpetrators and his relatives is subject to compulsory seizure.

friendship of Peoples

The principle of internationalism and good neighborly relations across the country in the program of the CPSU is far from the last.


The ethnic groups, communities and ethnic groups that inhabit Russia should not conflict with each other.

Cooperation outside the Russian Federation and sovereignty

In foreign policy, our country, according to the ideologists of the CPSU, must strictly observe national interests, so tensions with other countries on this basis cannot be avoided. At the same time, Andrei Bogdanov and his associates are not against the creation of an international structure, the so-called World Commonwealth of Socialist States, which is later transformed into a world communist society, where there will be no external borders. This is the only way to resist the innate countries of the capitalist way of life.

Participation in the election

In the fall of 2012, the political party “Communist Party of Social Justice” entered the election campaign, but the first pancake turned out to be a lump, and its representatives failed to receive a single mandate.

At the same time, the representative of the CPSU (Dmitry Kochergin) received the support of 289 votes on the basis of the election of the mayor of Kaliningrad.


In early autumn of 2013, the left-wing structure, headed by Yuri Morozov, took part in regional elections in the Volgograd region. As a result, the party members managed to overcome the 5 percent barrier and get one seat in the local city duma.


In 2014, the party’s Central Committee was headed by the founder of the CPSU himself. So, Yuri Morozov lost his responsible post. But Andrei Yurevich Brezhnev (grandson of Leonid Ilyich) took the post of first secretary. He will later lead the party lists in the regional elections in the Republic of Mari El, the Republic of Crimea, the KCR, the Legislative Assembly of the city of Sevastopol. Currently, Andrei Yurevich Brezhnev lives in the Crimea and has long left the ranks of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation to join the new left. It should be noted that the latter did not confirm the rumors that the grandson of the Soviet Secretary General will compete with the grandson of another communist ideologue Gennady Andreyevich Zyuganov, whose name is Leonid. It was he who ran for the Moscow City Duma in the Sokol electoral district.

In December 2015, the structure of Oleg Sidorov (“Civil Force”) and the association of Andrei Bogdanov (“CPSU”) were consolidated into the “Communist Party of Social Justice”. But after a few days, Oleg Sidorov was removed from office.

Andrei Bogdanov, an ideologist of left-wing views, emphasizes that the creation he created will most actively participate in the political life of the country and will definitely compete for chairs in the State Duma of Russia, in which elections are not far off.

“At the moment this is the main goal for us. We plan to enlist at least 3% of the vote in order to be eligible to participate in regional elections without collecting signatures and to get the opportunity of budget financing. These two components are enough for the CPSU to develop successfully, ”the party leader stressed. He also added that “not collecting signatures” is not a priority area, since the experience of the Communist Party of Social Justice in this area is quite impressive.


Some experts believe that the CPSU is a product created in opposition to the Communist Party. Many people know that the ex-leader of the new association of left-wing Yuri Morozov in the era of socialism had a party card.


Some time later, he transferred to the “White House” of the Saratov Region, and later became the head of the public reception faction “United Russia”. The Communists accused the representatives of the CPSU of the fact that the new party repeatedly nominated its people in single-mandate constituencies, which were the namesakes of those promoted by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. That was how the votes were selected and the voters were misled.

Another scandal occurred in 2013. In Arkhangelsk, the female candidate of the Communist Party of Social Justice was removed from the elections for the reason that she had already died several months.

One way or another, but Andrei Bogdanov himself in big-time politics is far from new. He is credited with “record-keeping” when it comes to party building, since he has more than ten unions of federal significance on his account. Once he declared that he had participated in the life of such factions as United Russia, the Democratic Party of Russia, the Russian Party of Pensioners, and the People’s Party of Sergei Mavrodi. Subsequently, he said that he did not care which party to create: the customer determines the political orientation. At the same time, experts have no doubt that Bogdanov took the CPSU under his wing, largely because left ideas are again gaining popularity among the people. In the minds of the older generation, the CPSU is perceived as a symbol of stability in society.
