According to journalist Steve Rosenberg, in an article for the BBC, the ONF may replace the United Russia party that backs Putin, in accordance with the probable reason for its establishment.[8]


In January 2014, the Front registered its first regional office in the city of Lipetsk, located some 440 kilometers south of Moscow, with Russia’s Justice Ministry.[7]

On 4 December 2013, the conference of the Front was held with the participation of Putin. The conference, which ran until 6 December, discussed the process of implementing Putin’s key reforms in healthcare, economy, community services, education and culture. The meeting held numerous round tables on the president’s so-called "May decrees" and tackle internal agenda items.[5][6]

On 12 June 2013, the movement convened its inaugural congress and Putin was elected as leader.[1] Also elected in the front’s Central Staff, were film director Stanislav Govorukhin, Delovaya Rossiya, co-chairman Alexander Galushka, and State Duma member Olga Timofeyeva.[1] According to the Charter, the Front’s goal is, "promotion of unity and civil solidarity in the name of Russia’s historical success"; the country’s development as a free, strong and sovereign state with a robust economy; fast economic growth; and reliance on the family. On the list of the ONF founders were 480 people, including trade union activists, workers, scientists, culture workers, athletes, businessmen, farm and medical workers and politicians.[4]

In April 2011, at a meeting with the Coordinating Council of the People's Front, Prime Minister and President-to-be, Putin, said the activities of the front will continue after the election season ends. At the same meeting, Putin also said that Russia should not get into a situation in which the parliament is not a leading political force.[2] By May 2011, hundreds of businesses had enlisted their workforces in the organisation, including around 40,000 from the Siberian Business Union.[3]

At the meeting of United Russia on May 6, 2011, Putin called for the creation of a "broad popular front [of] like-minded political forces" to participate in the Vyacheslav Volodin has been named the head of the popular front headquarters.
