Started United Civil Front in Russia 

In 2005 he formed the United Civil Front, of which he is still the chairman, and co-led The Other Russia coalition that focused on uniting the Russian opposition to Putin under the banner of free and fair elections.

Upon the organization’s founding, in 2005, Kasparov stated that the UCF “will work to preserve electoral democracy in Russia.” Kasparov concluded the press conference by stating that, “The primary goal of the systemic opposition is to dismantle the currently existing system and create a free political floor on which free elections can be held in 2007–2008. The bottom line is to preserve the Russians’ right to elect a responsible government, both in presidential and parliamentary elections.”
