"It was established on April 26, 2009 by the decision of the conference of users of the forum of the Internet portal INOFORUM.RU, protocol No. 1 dated April 26, 2009. A community of citizens who have decided to move on to active civic action and create their own public organization was formed on the basis of the former "РИА Новости" (English: RIA Novosti) (a Russian state-owned domestic news agency) internet project "иноСМИ" (English: inoSMI, a derivation from Иностранные СМИ, "Foreign mass media"), which has been specializing in translations and discussions of foreign press for more than five years. As a result, in the period from March 10 to March 13, 2009, more than six thousand participants of the INOSMI forum, living in different countries, of different nationalities, of various citizenships, left the INOSMI resource, within a few days raised funds based on voluntary donations from the members of the forum and created a people's patriotic Internet project "Инофорум" (English: Inoforum).

On April 26, the founding conference of the organization was held. In May 2009 meetings of regional branches were held in St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk and Moscow. On July 11, 2009, the first congress of the International Public Organization "Veche" was held in Moscow, which was attended by delegates of regional organizations, as well as guests and observers from other regions where regional organizations have not yet been established.

This organization has supported Russian troops in its military effort in Ukraine since 2014, as documented in this forum where pictures of military supplies were collected and sent to conflict areas that year:
