Nearly half of all Russians believe that the president and government of Russia will in the next four years double the national revenue, salaries and pensions, according to a poll conducted by the company ROMIR Monitoring between March 11 and 15 in 107 cities and towns throughout the Russian Federation. Conversely, 45% were skeptical of such a possibility.
Half of the Russians polled felt that the most important reforms at present were economic ones. Thirty to 36% of the respondents felt that the first priority had to be solving the problems of the military, healthcare and social security. A further 26% felt that pension reforms had to come first. As respondents were allowed to answer in several ways, the results did not total an even 100%. In all, 1,630 people participated in the polling.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
