Putin explained the decline in income of Russians and the difference between stagnation and stability

During a large video interview, Russian President Vladimir Putin answered a number of questions that are currently worrying Russian society.

Answering a journalist's question TASS Andrei Vandenko on personal responsibility for reducing the income of Russians and increasing the number of poor in the country, the head of state explained that these phenomena are caused by objective circumstances, in particular, due to lower oil prices on the world market.

He noted that the country is currently less dependent on fluctuations in oil prices, and the share of non-oil and gas revenues is growing. Putin added that it takes time:

We wanted to leave and gradually leave, by the way. We are really moving away from this, because the share of non-oil and gas revenues is growing. But it takes time, you can’t do it with one click of your fingers.

In response to the journalist’s comment that the state of Russia after 2008 can be called a “general strengthening run in place,” the president noted that he agreed with this term.

At the same time, he explained that the main difference between economic stability and stagnation is that stability is the basis for development, and stagnation is, in fact, a backward movement and rejection of development.

    ... these phenomena are caused by objective circumstances

    Again, one demagogy (20 years already the same thing). Well, what is it honestly not to say frankly, the oligarchs are starving, they don’t have bread, they poor have to put caviar on sausage. All for them and all for their sake. He is trying for them. As a matter of fact, for this they put him at the helm of the state.

    As always, nothing. Well, "I kind of said about this problem." And you've had enough. Purely Putin's way. And the fact that the prices in a nearby store have already exceeded all conceivable limits, that is. Tell me, why did you press the "Magnet"? For instance. Sorry, we bought it. To break the price to heaven? You and your friends don't have enough money? How much more do you need? And what do you want to experiment with how much patience the people will have before the explosion?

      FAS has no questions regarding the overwhelming margins on the product. Bargain. Networks perform the most important function ... intermediaries and hucksters. With banks the same nonsense.

    If you listen to everything, and not just the drawn paragraph about oil revenues, we can note inconsistencies in the logic:
    - the income of Russians is growing;
    - the number of poor is growing;
    - everything is stable ...
    That is, the incomes of some specific Russians are growing, while others are vice versa? Is stability a stable widening of the income gap? About the share of oil revenues -

    we are really leaving, but the proportion is growing

    ... ah, are we definitely leaving in the right direction?

    It is better to live in Brezhnev's "stagnation" than in today's "stability." At that time, pensioners saved money from their pension for a book, but we did not hear about unemployment and suffocating mortgage.

    Yeah .... hmm everything is learned by comparison. And in general, as a person evaluating life in the country according to the reports of his "subordinates" and "friends" .... well, from the "conversations" with the substituted "random Russian"

    Under Brezhnevsky stagnation, GDP grew by 5-7% per year ....
    Under Vladimir Yasno Solnyshko, everyone argues about the statistical error of its growth from 0%.

    Over 20 years, the dependence of the budget on oil and gas has decreased from 65 to 55 percent. That is, to reach the Soviet 10 percent, it will take another 100 years?
