Abstract: This study analyses the possibility of Levyi Front being the 'savior of the Russian left'. This is done by comparing Levyi Front to the six main characteristics that define successful opposition in autocratic regimes as defined by Alfred Stepan. We will argue that although they do adhere to most of these characteristics, it is mostly a potential 'savior', but might not be able to force actual change in the modern Russian political arena.
