People’s Democratic Party “PRORIV!” (“Breakthrough” in English) was founded in June 2006 based on the International Youth Corporation “PRORIV!” (leader – Alena Arshinova). International Youth Corporation was first a student organization created as a counter to forces which looked toward the realization of “flower revolutions” at the territory of Pridnestrovie. Alexander Gorelovskii, combatant of the period of armed conflict between Moldova and Pridnestrovie, is the leader of the Party “PRORIV!”.
Dmitrii Soin, political worker, Doctor of Science (Sociology), officer of Pridnestrovian secret services, was the first to bring the idea of creation of the Party. Roman Konoplev, a well-known Russian publicist, took part in formulating ideological documents of the Party.
According to modern political vernacular members of the Party are called “breakthroughers”.
People’s Democratic Party “PRORIV!” supported Igor Smirnov during presidential elections in the December 2006.
Blocking out Tiraspol office of OSCE Mission in Moldova, burning Moldovan national flag are among “PRORIV’s!” campaigns. International Youth Corporation and People’s Democratic Party “PRORIV!” initiated the celebration of Russian state holidays in Pridnestrovie: “The Day of Russian Federation”, “The Day of Russian Constitution”, “St. George Ribbon”.
After presidential elections in 2006, Pridnestrovian Mass Media stop the informational support of “PRORIV’s!” activities. Hereafter “PRORIV!” starts the campaign of supporting political rights and freedom in Pridnestrovie. The central link of the Party’s ideology is recognition of PMR, promotion of the idea of Pridnestrovie’s integration to Russia, struggle for preservation of Russia’s presence in the region of Moldavian-Pridnestrovian conflict.
