"Russians deserve it": Poles on Putin's new plan to fight poverty

President Vladimir Putin has pushed back the deadlines for implementing a number of Russia's goals in the economics... This also affected the plan to fight poverty, writes the Polish portal Money.pl. However, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted those aspirations.

The publication reports that the Russian leader has just signed a decree on the national development goals that Russia should achieve by 2030. The share of the poor, currently 12,3% of the country's population, should be reduced to 2030% by 6,6.

The provision that Russia will enter the five largest economies in the world has disappeared from the new decree on the country's development goals.

Comments from Polish readers:

Poland is also poor, and therefore I am not interested in what is happening in Russia

- notes ziutek.

[...] So, gentlemen, first look at your yard, and then write about your neighbor

- outraged olo.

Rosstat, the state statistics institute, recently published a study showing that one in three Russian families cannot afford to buy two pairs of shoes a year. The press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, did not like this. Rosstat announced that it will not yet publish information on the income of citizens

Putin has deceived everyone and will go to a fifth term under the same program. I do not believe that Russians vote for him, but what if he wins all elections

- writes Demokracja.

The difference between Sweden and Russia is that in Russia 12% of the population lives in poverty, while in Sweden 10% of the population is millionaires. And who is the power here?

- compares XYZ.

Economically, they are in flight all the time. These ambitious plans to fight poverty are similar to all other Putin's slogans - civilizationally, Russia is simply regressing: poverty, poverty and poverty again.

- states rosja.

As the old sage said, Poland will reach the Urals. China will be beyond the Urals, and Russians will not be anywhere!
- writes a certain AJS.

In every country, the government is in power that the people there deserve. Russians got what they wanted

- notes krk.

Putin and his fifth economy in the world, only now it is the fifth from the end [...] and what do they generally produce besides missiles and tanks

- ssseyunmko sneers.

They have all sorts of hypersonic trinkets there, nuclear submarines and icebreakers ... And the fact that people live worse and worse ... But who cares

- noted RR20.

At least the president and his entourage are not in danger of poverty, so the rest can wait

- responded rask.

I wonder how many Russians will live to see the fulfillment of Putin's promises?

- asked Dobry wujek z USA.

    They remember the psheks of Minin and Pozharsky, judging by the cited dirt ... the baboons have only forgotten, but they are not appreciated for their intelligence, especially along the tracks.
  2. If Navalny was president in Russia, the percentage of poor people would asymptotically tend to 100%.

    It's fun to read those who live in debt (which will never be able to repay), about those who live on their own.
    The Poles have forgotten their wretched place in this world.

    The Central Bank of the Russian Federation lowered the refinancing rate to 4,5%. Putin's decree allowed the Central Bank of the Russian Federation not to target inflation below 4%. Well, putinoids and so-called "patriots", welcome to the 90s! CIA-developed shock therapy back in vogue?

      Did you understand what you wrote, an economist? In the 90s, the rate reached 210%!


      - and inflation - up to 84%! What are you talking about?

        And they tell you about it. Everything goes to that. What's incomprehensible?

    The Poles, as always, think their country is a subject of international politics, and Poland is an object. The object, which is being moved like a pawn, is the United States, but EU officials do not disdain ...

    It is very difficult to reach the Urals. They couldn't go further than Moscow. Somehow, it didn't work out and that's it.
    But to return us 2/3 of East Prussia, donated to the Poles in vain, this is just right. Why would they have such a piece of land. Justify me, and not only me, but our soldiers who died there.
