Telegraph: Putin's disappointment rises in Russia

Disappointment with the president of the country is gradually growing in Russian society, according to The Telegraph, a British publication. The main reason, experts believe, is Putin’s self-esteem from deterioration economic situation in Russia, associated mainly with the rampant epidemic of coronavirus.

Over the last 24 hours of Sunday, May 3, the number of people infected with a new virus in the Russian Federation increased by 10633 people and amounted to more than 134 thousand people. At the same time, Putin did not put forward any clear plan to combat this scourge and delegated decision-making to the regions.

What the president says on television is empty words ... We are asked to stay at home, but the government does not help

- said Russian football player Evgeny Frolov in a recent interview.

The Russians see that the governments of many countries allocate colossal amounts to help the population. In Russia, officials are very reluctant to take such measures, and even getting subsidies announced at the very top can be very difficult.

Due to economic and epidemiological problems, residents of Russia are less and less trusting the current head of state. According to Levada Center polls, now 46 percent of Russians would vote for Vladimir Putin, although only a year ago he was supported by about 54 percent of the country's citizens. A number of experts in this regard suggest postponing the vote for “Putin’s amendments” to the Constitution, nullifying his term in office, until better times.

This is a relatively favorable result for the authorities. The most important thing for the Kremlin now is to ensure that society does not get hung up on general discontent

- said The Telegraph Moscow political analyst Masha Lipman.

But much will depend on how soon Russia quits quarantines and how quickly recovery will take place.

- Denis Volkov, deputy director of the Levada Center, said.

      Such infa will appeal not only to Russians, but also to Americans who were massively evicted from their homes because of the inability to pay loans for a mortgage during the crisis of 2008-2011, while the US state was building new bases abroad or preferred to save multinational banks, fought in Libya. wink And how many debts were written off at the same time in Greece, Italy, Portugal?

      Russia also wrote off all debts to citizens a few years ago. All unpaid tax debts as of 01.01.2015 were written off. Strain your memory. As for debts to commercial organizations, one should not apply to the state, but to creditors, or to arbitration.

    When in 1998 "Kinder Surprise" brought down the Russian economy, Primakov-Maslyukov saved the country. And Putin took the country in 1999 for free. Hard times came, and the rulers themselves fell ill. And Putin has only Kudrin and "Kinder Surprise" in the cage. And besides optimization, they don't know how to do anything.

I respect Putin and always support, then there is a fat BUT ... Either you are for ours, or "for the Russians" - it's time, Volodya, to be determined ... As for the subsidies and " money from the helicopter. " There are clear economic criteria, including "money from a helicopter" as a way to accelerate inflation (not our "hyper", but effective demand) - not to give one-time money to everyone, but to start with increasing pensions, benefits, children's allowances. People do not bring extra money to the London-Cypriot offshores (as the current "help" to brainless gas companies will flow), but to stores, demand is growing, the economy is alive ... It's on your fingers ...

        It always seemed strange to me - I am looking for a decent salary, and at once a secretary for comfort, and a driver. To get a decent salary, I got up at 5.00 and arrived at 22.30, and started at the mine with a fortress, then a mining institute, etc. And there was a decent salary.

    And here I have a question for Sergey Marzhetsky. Although he is not the author of the article, but as a lawyer he can know (or understand the theory of law).
    If the State Duma adopted all the articles / laws amending the Constitution, is it necessary to vote among the population?
    I read somewhere on Russian sites that new articles were already applied in some areas ...

      In fact, the Kremlin does not really need a "popular vote". This is done to excuse, they say, "they themselves asked, they themselves approved." At one time, the "people" went to Boris Godunov three times, asked to go to the kingdom. laughing
      In general, the "plebescite" for the amendments, which includes a clause on "zeroing Putin", as well as "the conclusion of the Constitutional Court" - this is purely for legitimizing an openly dubious event called "Zeroing". But after now, within the framework of "self-isolation," they are wiping their feet on the Constitution every day, the question arises, is this legitimation necessary now?

    Nonsense! Yes, many are unhappy with the increase in pensions. age, and much more, BUT: at the last moment, the majority always turns on their heads, and votes anyway for him. Because his "competitors" (communists and liberals) were already in power, and we all remember how some destroyed and others plundered the country. Therefore, of all the evils, the Russians will choose the least - Putin ...

      Yes, I agree, there is no way in Russia without the "yellow man" sitting in the bunker and pretending that he remotely "controls" the country. It just doesn't. So that every true patriot, a Russian, should not hesitate to indicate his civic choice in favor of the "eternal", his correct civic position.

    And the president, in general, is an authority? Without the support of the people, he cannot cope with offshore oligarchs.
    Tens of millions of idiots outwardly indistinguishable from normal people - cannot link the decline in their standard of living and the fact that the economy of the country in which they live is subordinated to the United States.

      Without the support of the people, he cannot cope with offshore oligarchs

      A package of laws related to the creation and regulation of special administrative regions in the territories of the Kaliningrad Region and Primorsky Territory was signed in August 2018 of the year. According to the authors, the regimes should become alternative to offshore and attract foreign investors.

      There you can find a list of documents submitted for state
      registration of an international company, under paragraph 15:

      A document confirming the company's obligations to make investments in the territory of the Russian Federation, including on the basis of a statement of intent to make investments in the territory of the Russian Federation, a special investment contract, a concession agreement, an agreement on public-private (municipal-private) partnership or another agreement ( perhaps - declaration of intent in a simple declarative form on company letterhead to the Joint Stock Company “Kaliningrad Region Development Corporation”)

      Well, that is, - he announced his intention to take some municipal water utility into the concession - get tax benefits, the concessionaire changed a couple of rusty pipes (invested in infrastructure!) And you can raise tariffs for the population lol Of course, I’m not an expert in incorporation-redomicilation-jurisdictions, but after reading something I see something like this smile
      And mind you - the legislative work to create "Russian offshore companies for the Russian oligarchy" was carried out in parallel with the preparation of the "pension maneuver".

    The current power is liked only by the dim-witted or enemies of Russia.
    She is completely pro-Western.
    The scientific and technical potential of the country has been completely lost and is being formed on the basis of a leftover attribute (of those who were not needed by the West), but the patriots continue to sacredly believe in the "cunning plan" and "miracle weapon".

    Even if you do not refer to information from the media, just looking at what happens to people around you, friends and relatives in the theory of five handshakes, it’s clear that people are unhappy due to cunning self-isolation, which completely put “big and thick” on constitutional rights person, and the courts, being the guarantor of our constitution, issue fines to people for violating illegitimate decisions and decrees of local authorities. People were left without money, without work, without the opportunity to even earn money, because you can’t leave home under the threat of being fined, in loan obligations, one-on-one with the banking system, which does not care that you cannot pay for a mortgage not through his own fault, but because the president signed his own helplessness and left his people. People asked for the introduction of an emergency mode, this would solve many problems, the government would act in this case as a guarantor of fulfillment of obligations. But no! The government chose to solve all the problems at the expense of the population! At the expense of business!
    One gets the feeling that this is some kind of collusion with banks, because they still profit.
    Well, what kind of trust is there to talk about ?! Patriotism towards the country, as to the homeland, is no longer to Putin.
