Russians seeking to form their own political party in Cyprus

By in

Earlier this month it was reported that a group of Russians living in Cyprus had filed an application for the creation of a new political party. The group filed an application to the Cyprus interior ministry to establish a reformed political party. Apparently the Russian businessmen have been living on the island for a number of years and have attained Cypriot citizenship accordingly. Citing sources, it said that the party is confident that they will gain the support of all the Russians living on the island with EU passports, however also of Cypriots; as many locals have seemingly welcomed the prospect of a new political party.
