Russians consider the rise in prices to be the main problem of society. As evidenced by the Levada Center survey data received by Meduza, this opinion is shared by 58% of respondents.
The survey was conducted on February 18-24, 2021. Levada Center notes that in recent years, Russians’ concerns about price increases have been steadily declining – so, in 2016, more than 80% of respondents called it a problem, in 2018 – 60-70%.
The respondents named poverty (40%), corruption (39%) and rising unemployment (36%) as other important problems. Russians are paying more and more attention to corruption: the importance of this problem has grown since 2015 (24%) and in recent years has stabilized at the level of 39-40%.
In the social sphere, Russians are most worried about the stratification of society into rich and poor (26%), the inaccessibility of many types of medical services (23%) and education (20%).
