Union of Leftists (Ukrainian: Союз Лівих Сил) is a Ukrainian political party led by Vasyl Volha[1].

History

The party was founded on December 8, 2007 and its goals were empower local communities, provide state support for poor regions, stop the privatization of strategic state enterprises and the sale of agricultural land, make Ukraine geopolitically neutral and make Russian the second state language.[2]

In November 2008 the party headquarters were the target of arson. According to the party, this was connected to an action against radical nationalism in Ukraine conducted by the party in Simferopol the day before where they burned swastikas and flags of some nationalist parties.[3]

The party will participate in the 2010 presidential election as part of the Election bloc of left and central left political forces and support Petro Symonenko as this bloc joint candidate for the post of Ukraine's president at the Ukrainian presidential election, 2010.[4][5]
