Reuters: Kremlin will "flood" protests with money

The Russian authorities are likely preparing large-scale financial assistance to the country's poor. According to sources in the Russian government, as well as the calculations of experts, the amount of assistance varies from 6,75 to 7,81 billion dollars. Reuters believes that the Kremlin is thus planning to "pour" money into the popular protest against the imprisonment of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

It is clear that the purpose of the package is to ease public discontent at least before the September elections

- notes the British edition.

Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the Russian president, denies plans to allocate such large funds and does not link subsidies to Russians with socialpolitical protests. However, according to one source in the Russian government, Vladimir Putin may announce such support measures during his speech to the Federal Assembly in the coming weeks.

Reuters interlocutors stressed that the purpose of the financial aid package is to show that the Kremlin is aware of the financial difficulties of the Russian population and is eager to help.

Financial support for the Russians would be very appropriate. According to official figures, the average Russian salary reached $ 660 (the real median salary in most Russian cities is much lower), but people's real incomes fell by 3,5 percent, and the unemployment rate reached 10 percent for the first time in 6 years.

Economy Russia suffers greatly from the coronavirus - inflation in January was 5,2 percent, gradually accelerating and catching up with other European countries. In this difficult situation, the West threatens Russia with new sanctions for the treatment of Navalny, which could aggravate economic damage and negatively affect the international ratings of the Russian Federation.

    Money was "poured in" even before Navalny became alyona from Alyosha.

    It is illogical. All media outlets write that it is raging with fat. And then they also pour money.

      Not all. Here the "good king" solved the problem in manual mode:
      The problem is that the manual mode will not be enough for everyone, but in the automatic mode it does not work and will not work, as evidenced by the history of the issue - Medvedev said back in 2013 (!) That the salary of scientists will be 200% of the average for the region by 2018 (!) year.
      In fact, 8 years later, for some it turned out that it was "nonsense, mud and compote," and ministers Falkov (appointed in 2020) and Siluanov (appointed in 2018) were entrusted to deal with the issue. But this is nit-picking, of course, sir. The main thing is that - so that a positive aftertaste after the release of "news" remains - the matter is for the elections, you can promise 300% by 2028 lol

    The Russian economy suffers from the parasitic gang of oligarchs ruling the country.

    Yes, easily. And after the elections he will "beat back" the money by raising taxes.
    And if they say anything, you have empowered us to make any decisions in general, fair, transparent and democratic elections, so your protest is unauthorized.

        I am against allocating money in the described way. We all pay taxes. On "Plato", on "trash", whatever. It is from these numerous (already collected over many years) taxes that money must be paid. The funded pension was frozen. 5 years of pension payments were taken away.

        Where is the money?

          How - where is the money, Zin?
          Here, they are going to pay.
          Or is it not the money you need money? Or maybe it's not money at all?
          And if they did not pay, then there would be a cry about this.
          Not paying is bad, paying is also bad.
          Here you are, fighters against the regime, wizards, to confuse us, ordinary people. Stalin is not on you!

            You need the Tsar-Father, not Stalin (no reproach, of course).

            For political democracy, the development of competitive relations is of prime importance. It is the relationship rivalries offer development и stability Western democracies, hence it is axiomatic for the government to tolerate the opposition. Suppression of opposition is dangerous because it diminishes the possibility of a competitive political system and increases the likelihood of a slide towards authoritarian rule.

            What is most curious is that this quote does not contradict the well-known "law of dialectics" of the unity and struggle of opposites, but only confirms it. Until we understand this, we will move from one troubles / revolution to another instead of reaching an agreement through representatives in parliament and harmoniously coexisting.

              Any quote where there is a similar question about democracy can be safely sent down the toilet, just like the concept itself. Proven in the USA.

                The commission of the Saratov regional Duma on income suspected the parliamentarian of corruption due to donations and income from advertising on YouTube ... The deputy himself said that he was present at the rally as a deputy and observed the situation at the request of citizens. He connected his detention with plans to participate in the elections to the State Duma this fall. Bondarenko will run in the same region as its speaker, United Russia member Vyacheslav Volodin.

                So let Bondarenko represent the interests of his 2% of voters in the Duma - don't you think? And the wolves are fed, and the sheep are safe.
                But this is not our path, we need to "not let go and forbid" with all the consequences, as has happened more than once in history and not only in our country request

                  What a terrible horror!
                  The first I hear about him.
                  So it was he who earned the money that they want to pay to people, but you are "against the allocation of money in the described way" "?
                  Has this deputy arrived?

                  on a lame flea from that coast of the sea, which the hare cannot fly over, the eagle cannot cross, even though the sea is not the sea, and so, a puddle in the middle of the city, where the shadow of the flea fell on the hare and killed him, and the sheepskin coat came out of the skin of the hare and went wherever he looked they look, and then the hare will jump !.

    It smells of rot from such disinformation, but they will burst from greed. The country with the largest reserves of natural resources in the world, somehow weaves at the end of the welfare of the PEOPLE. This is mediocrity, not the ability to work, some kind of greed, low professionalism. It's a shame, "gentlemen" tall inmates.
