The decline in living standards in the Russian Federation due to the coronavirus pandemic has led to the willingness to enter the protests, a record number of Russians in a year and a half.
On this subject, it is written “MFN” referring to “24 channels“.
According to the results of a Levada Center survey, 28% of the inhabitants of the Russian Federation have declared themselves ready to go to street demonstrations: 27% of them are convinced that it is possible to start demonstrations now.
As pointed out in the Levada Center, the figure of 28% is the maximum value for a year and a half. The previous peak maximum protest activity dropped in November 2018. Then, due to an increase in the country’s retirement age, 30% of Russians were ready to take to the streets:
“It’s worth understanding that taking to the streets, at least for now, is just unrealistic. But separate protests in major cities this summer are quite possible, ”- noted in the Levada Center.
Recall that we wrote earlier that Putin had been informed of a sharp increase in feelings of protest in the Russian Federation.
