Working paper

Россия: жизнь после 2013 года

In the two-part work the beginning of the report focuses on the quantitative assessment of population welfare losses in Russia after 2013. For this purpose not only the official statistics is widely used, but the studies, which contain the own assessments of the situation by the Russians. There are international comparisons of the incomes (the average wages and pensions) in Russia and the Baltic countries for a number of years. The second part shows the negative impact of counter-sanctions on the Russian grocery market and the failure of the sanctions as "an answer to the West." At the same time, it revealed more than the loyal attitude of the Russian population to such a policy of the authorities. In the conclusion made an attempt to present the current political and economic situation and possible trends as a product of the traditional Russian stereotypes rooted in the mass consciousness.
