The risk of dismissal increased in all regions of Russia
The risk of dismissal in Russia increased by 37%. Among the Far Eastern regions, the majority of those who have heard of dismissals among friends or are afraid of dismissal themselves has grown in the capital of Buryatia.

According to a study by the Financial University under the Russian government, an average of 19% of residents of large and medium-sized cities are aware of cases of job loss among relatives and acquaintances, or are afraid of dismissals at their workplace. In early April, the proportion of those who knew about the dismissals or were afraid of them amounted to 14% of the number of Russians participating in the telephone survey. The survey was conducted in cities with a population of 250 thousand people.

The highest level of concern about unemployment is in central Russia. Among the Far East, the proportion of those who are afraid of dismissal or have heard of such cases is also not small. So, in Khabarovsk, the share of such residents increased by 32% compared with April. The same growth was shown by a survey in Vladivostok. In the capital of Transbaikalia, the share of such answers increased by 22%, and in Yakutsk - by 28%. In the capital of Buryatia, the proportion of those who are aware of layoffs or are afraid of losing their jobs has immediately increased by 52% compared with the beginning of April.

In this case, the number of unemployed by the end of the year according to the forecasts of the Accounts Chamber, it will be about eight million people. Since the start of the pandemic, the number of unemployed is already increased by 800 thousand people. The peak in the number of unemployed in Russia will be in the third quarter of this year. This was stated by Minister of Labor and Social Protection Anton Kotyakov.
