People's Union ( _ru. Народный Союз), formerly known as Party of National Revival "Narodnaya Volya" ( _ru. Партия Национального Возрождения «Народная Воля»), is a
Russian nationalist party created in December of 2001and led by a veteran Russian nationalist politician Sergey Baburin.
It was created by uniting four minor nationalist parties who merged together and its name Narodnaya Volya translates from Russian as People's Will. In September of
2003Narodnaya Volya joined Rodinacoalition what performed surprisingly well in the 2003 State Dumaelections.
Narodnaya Volya is seen by many as the most nationalist and conservative element in mostly leftist Rodina and a number of its members in the past were associated with Russian far right movements. Currently nine members of Narodnaya Volya are deputies of the Russian Duma. In October
2006Narodnaya Volya, unlike most of Rodina coalition, did not join the Russia of Justiceparty and remained an independent faction in the Duma.
Narodnaya Volya claims to have international ties with
People's Opposition Bloc of Natalia Vitrenkoled by Nataliya Vitrenko, National Front (France)led by Jean-Marie Le Penand Serbian Radical Partyof Vojislav Šešelj.
Prominent Narodnaya Volya party members include
Viktors Alksnis, Nikolai Leonovand Aleksandr Rutskoy.

On March 26,
2007Narodnaya Volya united with 13 small nationalist, Orthodox Christian and conservative organizations and party was renamed "People's Union" (Народный Союз). New party declared its intension to participate in 2007 Russian Duma elections.
