Most Russians do not anticipate improved living standards in near future

Most Russians do not anticipate any significant improvement in their living standards in the near future. This was the result of a survey of 1500 Russians carried out by sociologists from the agency of regional political research on August 21-25. About a third of respondents (28%) said they do not expect their generation to witness any positive changes in their lifetime. 21% expect some improvement within the next 6-10 years while another 21% expect this improvement within the next 10-15 years.

On the other hand, 13% said they expect living standards to rise noticeably within 3-5 years and 4% say this will even be possible within the next 1-2 years.

11% of respondents were extremely pessimistic, saying that life in Russia will never improve. 4% failed to answer the question.
