  Rodina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rodina or Motherland-National Patriotic Union (Rodina - Narodno-Patriotičeskij Sojuz, Партия "РОДИНА") is one of the four parties that control seats in the Russian legislature.
However, in February 2005 four Rodina deputies, including Dmitry Rogozin, went on a public hunger strike and locked themselves in their offices at the State Duma to protest the social benefit reforms being pushed through by Putin's Government.
Many suspected this was a tactical decision on Rodina's part to ease pressure from the Kremlin, although a small number of party members in Moscow had been vocal in their criticism of Rogozin's more outlandish nationalist rhetoric.

 Russia, Politics, Rodina - JRL 3-24-06
Rodina leader Dmitry Rogozin will be ousted at a party congress Saturday and replaced with Alexander Babakov, a wealthy businessman who heads the party's presidium and is closely associated with the Kremlin, senior Rodina members said.
Rodina has since emerged as a strong political force, and Rogozin clearly upset the Kremlin and fellow party members by adopting a passionate opposition voice -- particularly by hitting the streets with the Communists and Yabloko to protest the monetization of state benefits last year.
Rodina was also barred from seven races for regional legislatures on March 12, but it ran in a vote for the Altai republic's legislature and placed second, just behind United Russia.
