The party was originally founded by a Russian billionaire Gleb Fetisov and Oleg Mitvol.[1] Gleb Fetisov left the party chairmanship and exited the party in December 2015.[2]

On 25 January 2014, the Gleb Fetisov-led Alliance of Greens — People’s Party united at their 3rd congress with four almost unknown parties of Gennady Gudkov’s Social Democrats of Russia, Freedom and Justice, Kolokol (“bell”) and the Party of Free Citizens. Gennady Gudkov and Gleb Fetisov became co-chairmen of the Alliance of Greens and Social Democrats. Oleg Mitvol became the chairman of the alliance’s central council.[3] Gleb Fetisov, Dmitry Gudkov, Ilya Ponomarev, Elena Lukyanova, Dmitry Nekrasov and others became the members of the party's council.[4]

On 12 December 2015, after a party coup at the December Congress, a member of the Public Chamber of Moscow Alexander Zakondyrin was elected the party chairman. The name of the party was changed from the Alliance of Greens and Social Democrats to Green Alliance. The positions of co-chairmen were abolished.[5]

On October 2, 2019, the Supreme Court of Russia, following a lawsuit by the Ministry of Justice, liquidated the party for insufficient participation in the elections for 7 years.[6]
