Putin named a more realistic reason for the protests in Russia


Russian leader Vladimir Putin named a more realistic reason for the protests in Russian cities that took place in January 2021. The President announced this during an online meeting with representatives of the leading Russian media, which took place on February 10 behind closed doors.


It should be noted that in the process of communication, the conversation turned to the nature of protest moods, as well as who, why and how is shaking the situation in the country. An excerpt from the head of state's speech was published on the Web.

One of the journalists drew attention to the fact that many protesters went out into the streets not because of the arrest of blogger Alexei Navalny, but for other reasons, mainly purely economic, related to the deterioration of their own lives. He even suggested that the head of state hold “economic decentralization ”to improve people's lives, citing the experience of combating COVID-19.

About the fact that people went out to protests, including not for this person involved. Yes, you are probably right, you are. Do you know what the matter is? After all, the person involved is using it right now. It is when in all countries of the world, including ours, people become tired, accumulated irritation arises, discontent arises, including in relation to the conditions in which they live. Your income level. We are human beings and we understand everything. The person began to live worse - it's bad. Coronavirus or whatever, it doesn't matter. The one who is always to blame is the boss. This is the share of the bosses, there is nothing you can do about it. And, of course, they are trying to use this in Europe, in the USA, and in our country too. And they took advantage of it. Well, of course. This is the calculation

- explained Putin.


The President stressed that citizens assess their lives not according to the past, "but because they want it to be tomorrow." And there is no getting away from it. Therefore, the country's authorities, realizing this, are doing everything possible to achieve the desired result. He specified that there are national projects for this, which are aimed at accelerating the pace of development of the country. Before that, it became known that Putin put point in the issue of the Southern Kuriles.

      Russian President Vladimir Putin said that in Russia 70% of residents belong to the middle class. In an interview with TASS, he explained that he proceeds from the World Bank's methodology, according to which those people whose income is one and a half times higher than the minimum wage can be ranked as the middle class.
      Putin recalled that the minimum wage in Russia is a little more than 11 thousand rubles, which means that the middle class is people who receive from about 17 thousand rubles. “We have a lot of such people, confidently over 70%,” the head of state said.
      Read more at RBC:

      Russia, 2020, middle class = $ 230, its "confidently over" 70%. Plus another 14% below the poverty line (beggars).
      That's all there is to know about the so-called "reforms" over the past 30 years.

        Do you spend dollars in Russia? But what and how much can you buy and pay for $ 230 in the US? And sooooo little.) But I have a pension of 18500 and, having paid for an apartment and the Internet with a phone, received a subsidy for housing and communal services, having all the necessary household appliances, I can live quite comfortably. And I don’t need to limit myself in my diet - my gastrointestinal tract is in order. In order not to shake for every penny, I took care of this for the last 15 years before retirement and, working a little on retirement. I can even myself from Siberia let the ride.

            And read it more carefully? "In order not to shake for every penny, I have taken care of this during the last 15 years before retirement and working a little in retirement." Do you think why American and other retirees travel (although this is very, very exaggerated), because they have never traveled anywhere in their lives. I read once about a Swedish couple who have owned a travel agency for almost 40 years. And ask the author: " You've probably traveled all over the world? "Answer:" What are you? We haven’t traveled anywhere further than our town. Once upon a time. We work! " And ours have only a penny jingling and a party.

        Count how many beggars and homeless people in America and everything will fall into place. Russia is far from the last place in terms of economic indicators among all countries in the world. Yes, not yet in the first, but in the top ten for sure, this in itself is a reason for pride.

    He clarified that there are national projects for this,

    That's why they are projects, that always remain only projects. lol I wonder if at least one project has ever been brought to reality?

    Therefore, the country's authorities, realizing this, are doing everything possible to achieve the desired result.

    Achieve the desired result laughing What a literary twist lol I would like to ask right away. For whom? For officials, deputies, oligarchs? They have had the desired result for twenty years. Already there are not enough bank accounts.

    Probably VVP does not understand how and how Huge Russia lives? Residents of the country just want to live in peace in their country, not counting a penny, they want the state to take care of its population, to hear their problems and desire!

      Alexander, i.e. do you want to return socialism to Russia? Just say so! And then in the Russian Federation is now capitalism, after all. And in capitalism, the state is NOT OBLIGED to take care of the population. In capitalism - every man for himself! That's how the Yankees - they die like flies, but - a country of equal opportunities!

    In Europe and the USA the unemployment benefit is 600-800 USD !!! YouTube is packed with promises from Putin for 20 years and there is no end in sight to these promises. Scientists are already talking directly about their salaries, and Putin was so surprised. And he knows that after that they will persecute this woman and only "contact" could say? And after all, the prosecutor's office and policemen are not afraid to arrange interrogations for this woman. Putin knows everything! He is needed to crush the people of Russia with impunity!

            So no, I'm talking about how poor residents of Florida and California are struggling with their "unaffordable" rent, by the way, how much is the price for a "grandmother" in the capital, enough tea in Manhattan to rent a penthouse 150 meters?

    Only as a result of the implementation of projects, the living standards of the people do not grow, but the number of billions of people is dashingly growing.
