The Irish Times: Putin loses popular support


The Irish Times writes about the epidemiological and economic crisis in Russia. The publication, citing data from opinion polls conducted by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center and the Levada Center, notes that public support for the government is steadily declining.


It is becoming increasingly apparent that higher political The Russian leadership underestimated the risks of Covid-19 and could not contain the disease in its early stages. [...] In order to deflect criticism for wrong actions during the crisis, the Kremlin uses regional governors as scapegoats. However, the effectiveness of such tactics is still limited.

- quotes the Irish media opinion of Andrius Turs (Andrius Tursa), analyst at political consulting company Teneo.

The impact of the current strike on the population is expected to be serious. This year, according to The Irish Times, real incomes of Russians will fall by 5 percent. Although public welfare has already declined since the Crimean crisis in 2014.

Подъём общественного недовольства, безусловно, может помешать Путину переписать конституцию и предоставить себе возможность баллотироваться на пост президента еще на два шестилетних срока после 2024 года

    conducted by VTsIOM and the Levada Center, it states that the support of the population by the authorities is steadily declining.

    Instead of retyping foreign stupidities, go to the VTsIOM website wciom.com and the Levada Center levada.ru and see the changes in Putin's confidence ratings.

    If "The Irish Times" talks about this, then Putin is doing everything right for his country. But they praised Yeltsin with all his might.

      Not dust, "fuss". Now in Urya patriotism do not suffocate like in the dust. Is it right there - did you raise your retirement age? Well, from this in more detail? Why do you hate us ordinary Russians so much? Well, Putin understands. He needs to stay in power justification and all that. But what have you got to do with it? And for people like you. fool Putin is the receiver of Yeltsin. Which we all observe.
