The Other Russia (Russian: Другая РоссияDrugaya Rossiya) is a Russian political party established in July 2010 by writer and National Bolshevik Party leader Eduard Limonov. On 21 January 2011 The Other Russia was denied registration by the Federal Registration Service because they did not have enough popular support among the Russian people.[1]

In 2010, three members of the party were arrested for their role in the Manezhnaya Square riots.[2] These arrests were flagged by human rights organizations as politically motivated by the member's involvement in the Other Russia party.[3][4]
