The Russian Federal Office of Statistics Rosstat and the Moscow School of Economics presented shocking data from polls among citizens of Russia. Around 35% of respondents say that their material situation has deteriorated over the past year and fewer people have seen improvement, reported. Only 15% of Russian citizens view positively economic changes. Dominant negative ratings contrast with the optimistic statements of state leaders. The most pessimistic group are the people aged between 30 and 49—also the most active, the working part of the population, adds business analyst Maxim Smidkich-Rodionov.
