Data-base is prepared by editorial staff of research and information bulletin “Partinform” (edited from the summer of 1992; as a part of the INDEM Foundation - from November 1994; chief editor – Y.Korgunyuk). “Partinform” is a weekly bulletin containing brief information about internal and public activity of Russian political parties, movements, electoral associations and parliamentary groups; it publishes (entirely or partially) resolutions, decrees, declarations and other documents of Russian political organizations; abstracts from their policy documents, interviews with leaders and activists; researching and reference sources etc.

Now “Partinform” does not have analogs in Russia; it is the most systematic and representative source of information about activity of Russian parties, fractions and electoral associations. The bulletin has its own correspondent network, specialized in party life. As a result it can publish materials about events that mainly are not given coverage by mass media.
