The situation resulting from the coronavirus pandemic could lead to large-scale protests in the country. This is the opinion of half of the Russians surveyed.

According to Kommersant, the survey was conducted by sociologists of the Belanovsky Group (Belanovsky was one of those who predicted protests on Bolotnaya Square in 2011).

Based on the results of the survey, the country’s negative attitude towards the federal government intensified, the Russians do not believe in its ability to effectively deal with the outbreak of coronavirus, the prevailing emotions in people are irritation, anxiety and anger.

According to sociologists, the main object of negative statements was Vladimir Putin, and most importantly, unfulfilled hopes became a complaint to him.

As regards fears of contracting coronavirus and fears of worsening financial situation, they have decreased, but the level of stress has increased.

Earlier, the Higher School of Economics conducted a survey according to which almost a quarter of Russians believe that a “pandemic was invented by“ interested parties ”.
