Let's start with the external debt, which fell from $ 158,7 billion in 2000 to 47,1 in 2018. At the same time, GDP in the period from 2000 to 2019, on the contrary, grew from 278,075 billion to 1637,89 billion US dollars.

The inflation rate, which in 2001 was 18,8%, dropped by almost 2019 times until 6. The poverty level has also changed in a positive direction, which has decreased by 2000 million people from 2019 to 23,3.

The average life expectancy of men in Russia increased from 59 to 68 years. For women, this indicator is 78 years, which is 6 years more compared to 2000.

The unemployment rate in our country as of 2019 was 4,9%, which is 8% lower than in 1999. At the same time, the average pension and salary in 2000 were 694 and 1500 rubles, respectively, and in 2019 - 14102 rubles. and 37900 p.

And finally, Russia's international currency reserves between 2000 and 2019 increased by $ 549850 billion, and gold reserves increased by 1865 tons.

    278,075 billion to 1637,89 billion US dollars. Although before the election they wrote that 17 times - 278x17 = 4726 should be. Who slammed 2/3?

    1637/278/19 years = 30% per year. That is, in terms of GDP growth, we overtake China, and USA, and a bunch more combined. Well, Putin says every year that, alas, the economy is almost not growing? Probably a tricky plan named after yourself!

    And with super-low inflation of 3%, for some reason, even bread rises in price by 15 percent annually ..... 2 years ago, a plain white loaf was under 19 p.

    Provocative article however smile

    Inflation rate ... poverty level ... average life expectancy ... average pension and salary ... and finally ...

    And finally, Rosstat lost its independent status, becoming subordinate to the customer statistics:

    Vladimir Sokolin: “God forbid, if those who can’t wait to“ catch up and overtake ”start managing statistics ...
    The Statistical Office lost its independent status in the structure of the government: by a presidential decree dated April 3, Rosstat was transferred to the Ministry of Economic Development. Shortly before this, the head of the ministry severely criticized the work of statisticians ...
    Vladimir Sokolin led the Russian Statistical Office for 11 years - from 1998 to 2009. Leaving his post, Vladimir Leonidovich slammed the door loudly: in his "farewell" interview ... he expressed a categorical disagreement with the transfer of Rosstat to the Ministry of Economic Development, as well as with the decision to postpone - due to the crisis - the next census. The further course of events confirmed that he was right: soon the government canceled the census transfer, and two years later Rosstat regained independence.

    What did the author forget to mention about such a trifle as a "conflict of interest"?
    What caused Rosstat to lose its independent status exactly during the preparations for the 2018 presidential election?
    You have to be more modest and work, rolling up your sleeves, for the good not of yourself, your loved ones, and your warm leadership chairs, but of future generations, and not to hang "frescoes" with your own faces in churches:

      And why all the above written?
      There is a desire to argue that Russia has risen very much since 2000, but there are no facts contradicting this phenomenon?
      I live in Russia. I am glad that Russia has ceased to be a "rag".

        There is a desire to separate propaganda and "desired results" from reality in order to improve the latter for all of us. How to plan the development of the economy, if this planning is possibly based on "inflated" figures and "vigorous" reporting? I will ask again - for what purpose did Rosstat subordinate the statistics to the main customer in 2017, disregarding a potential conflict of interest - are there any assumptions? In a military sense, yes, Russia has risen during this time. But in a closed financial system, if you have arrived somewhere, then you have saved on something.

        Are you friends with your head, friend?

        Is this the answer to my question? On the person usually pass in the absence of arguments. For the sake of fun (and not only) I will answer - Wikipedia has not passed and will not pass under the management, but someone would probably like this very long ago:

        Rospechat announced its intention to launch the Knowledge Internet portal by the end of 2011, which, according to its creators, will be able to compete with the Russian-language version of Wikipedia ... As for the alleged competition with the Russian-language Wikipedia, unlike it, content The Knowledge portal will be developed entirely by experts.

        Well, that is, they planned to complete it before the 2012 presidential election.

        Medvedev signed an order to create a Russian analogue of Wikipedia ... The decision was made to provide Russians with constantly updated reliable information "about the development and state of the surrounding world and society" ... Previously, the executive editor of the scientific publishing house of the Great Russian Encyclopedia Sergei Kravets said that the Russian the encyclopedic portal is planned to be created in 33 months; about 2 billion rubles will be spent on the project. According to Kravets, 33 months "end in the spring of 2022", but the authors plan to "come out with test versions" earlier than this date.

        Well, that is, test versions may appear before the State Duma elections.
        By the same link:

        A government order to create a nationwide portal was issued at the end of August 2016. To create such a resource, an interdepartmental working group was created, which was headed at that time by Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko ... He drew the attention of journalists to the fact that "in the total volume of this universal encyclopedia (Wikipedia) political texts and topics, and even more so those related to modern domestic realities, hardly occupy even 1% "... Prikhodko said that a nationwide scientific and educational portal will be created on the basis of digitizing the 35-volume universal scientific" Great Russian Encyclopedia " the publication of which was planned to be completed in 2017.

        Well, that is, they planned to complete before the 2018 presidential election.
        Well, there are three random coincidences. smile

        In 2018, the Anti-Corruption Fund published an investigation on how Oleg Deripaska was relaxing on a yacht with Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko, in which Navalny saw a conflict of interest.

        I did not understand the question about WHO, but since "such a booze" has gone, I will speak out.
        "Federal" RIA Novosti on April 3 (with pleasure?) Published the statements of the WHO spokesman Tarik Yazarevich, who commented on the massive homemade distribution and designer masks:

        "Wearing masks is not required for healthy people. Those with symptoms should wear masks to protect others. In addition, people who care for the sick, for example at home, should wear masks, as they can become infected," he said ...
        According to Yazarevich, the mask itself cannot serve as a guarantee of protection against the virus and should always be used along with other precautions. Moreover, it can create a false sense of security in people, according to a WHO representative.
        "And they'll forget about other things like washing their hands. And if you don't know how to wear a mask correctly, you will be touching your face much more often than usual," he added.

        This can be understood in different ways, but we know for sure that Covid-19 is transmitted by airborne droplets and wearing a mask increases the chances of maintaining health. So maybe this publication wanted to divert attention from the shortage of masks? According to the president’s words yesterday,

        even taking into account the tangible growth of our own production and large import purchases, the deficit of some machinery, equipment, and supplies remains. It is necessary to work on this.

    A week before the announcement to the "only source of power" about the need for a pension "reform":

    The growth, according to the president, is supported by a positive trade balance, which amounted to $ 2017 billion in 115. At the same time, Russia has a low level of debt and an increase in gold and foreign exchange reserves, their volume now amounts to about $ 450 billion ...
    In addition, according to the president, at the moment in the Russian Federation a historically low level of inflation remains, which is a powerful factor in further economic growth. The head of state also noted the accelerated growth of direct investment in the Russian economy, which in 2017 grew by 4,4%.
    "And finally, one of the most important indicators - our life expectancy continues to grow. This is the first, and the second - we have nevertheless reached a steady growth in the income of citizens. Wages increased by 1,9%, and the real income of the population - by 3,8, XNUMX%, "Putin said

    A tablet (domestic production) for memory, so to speak.

        Now in Russia they are building the same thing, only several times more, since they removed from the "feeding" any national ..... kov, such as Ukraine, the Baltic states, Georgia, and money appeared, and construction in Russia came to life. And not only construction - everything came to life!
